Outcome predictors in a depression secondary prevention program. On this study, predictors of efficacy, effectiveness and eficiency of three depression secondary prevention interventions were analysed: Cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy, reinforcing personal resources and social support. The sample was composed by 60 people with from-mild-to-moderate depression, who were randomly assigned either to any of the treatments or to a forth control group (waiting list). The interventions were developed in groups set at Primary Care Centres. Sociodemographic, psychopathology, quality of life and attendance to mental health services variables were assessed at pretest, postest and two follow-up evaluations, 6 and 12 months afterwards. These treatments have more efficacy on people in the middle
of the psychopathological severity ranking, with symptoms mixed with anxiety, with a
recent depression, with good social integration, with social support and without depression troubles in the past.
