Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of early parental religiosity on emerging adults' symptoms of depression. Using nationally representative data of emerging adults (n = 8,984), results suggest that early parental religious attendance during childhood and adolescence might have a positive influence on emerging adults' symptoms of depression. Implications for clinicians and future research are discussed.
