The purpose of this study was to examine the rates of psychiatric disorders in the parents of affective disordered adolescent inpatients, and to examine characteristics of the adolescent patients' illnesses and hospital stays for effects of having a concurrently depressed mother. Twenty-three percent of the depressed probands (N=33), 20% of the bipolar group (N=10), and 9% of the psychiatric control group (N=11) had mothers who reported major depression (MD) at the time of hospitalization. Concurrent maternal depression did not have prominent effects on the course of the adolescents' hospitalizations.
