Individual differences associated with depression are important for informing clinical practices. Relatively little is known about whether dispositional connectedness––the tendency to value relationships and consider others’ needs––is linked with depressive symptoms. Thus, the present study examined the association between dispositional connectedness and depressive symptoms, including whether self-concealment would mediate this relationship, among 116 mental health outpatients.
