This article reports feasibility issues with the implementation of an intervention study for depression in Latina women from Mexico living in an emerging immigrant community in the United States. Based on the PRECEDE-PROCEED model, the study explores implementation issues such as the intervention and retention, logistical issues such as transportation and childcare, and possible measurement issues such as reliability and validity of the Center for Epidemiologic Studies-Depression Scale, Spanish version. Future studies should evaluate the Center for Epidemiologic Studies-Depression Scale, Spanish version, and test the modified cognitive-behavioral group therapy intervention in larger samples and through randomized controlled studies.
