An inverse relationship between self-evaluation and depression has been established in previous research. In this study we tested hypotheses that social support acts as a mediator between self-evaluation and depression. A sample of 538 undergraduates completed a series of questionnaires to measure self-evaluation, depression, and social support. As predicted, correlations were found for self-evaluation, depression, and social support. Social support was shown to be a partial mediator in the relationship between self-evaluation and depression thus supporting our hypotheses.
