How unfortunate it is that headlines to articles may subtly mislead the reader. Such is the case with "UVU study put focus on LDS women, depression" (Jan. 31). The study participants were women who identified themselves as depressed and who were LDS.

The findings may be of use in treating depressed LDS women. However, causality should not be inferred that because a woman is LDS, she is more prone to being depressed.
