Abstract

This study investigated how hope influences the relationship between discrimination and depressive symptoms. Results from participants' (N=318) responses suggest that increased levels of hope were directly related to decreased levels of depressive symptoms. However, increased levels of hope were also related to a stronger relationship between discrimination and depressive symptoms.
