Description

Figure 18.1 shows, for all participants, that receiving real support at Time 1 reduced depression and raised self-esteem at Time 1 and at Time 2.  On the other hand, although the receipt of Internet support at Time 1 increased self-esteem at Time 1, it did not have a direct and significant effect on self-esteem and depression at Time 2.
