(Karasz A. in 2005) in an attempt to find cultural differences in the conceptual models of depression interviewed south Asian migrants and European Americans. His study demonstrated that European Americans were more of the view that depression was a pathological disease of the body just like any other disease and required medical therapy. According to Mr. Karasz, the people from the south Asian community were more likely to explain depression in terms of a social and moral problem and were of the belief that self management was the right way to deal with the issue of depression.
