This study aimed to evaluate possible factors associated with postpartum depression syndrome (PDD), as the substance abuse and psychosocial support in a sample of 102 women in a social vulnerability condition. The study was conducted with mothers who were residents in specific hospital’s lodging. Almost 20% of mothers showed symptoms to PDD as well as abusive alcohol and marijuana consumption compared with those who did not have PDD. Besides, it was observed an association between lack of psychological and familiar support with PDD. PDD it seems to be associated with other comorbidities so that some of these variables can be linked on the etiology and maintenance of PDD.
