The study was carried out to examine the relationship between family resilience, severity of depression and selfesteem. The Family Resilience Assessment Scale, Major Depression Inventory and Rosenberg Self-esteem Scale were administered to 63 adults with Major Depressive Disorder in Mumbai. Correlational analysis using Pearson's Product Moment Correlation indicated a significant negative relationship between family resilience and severity of depression, where r61= -.355, p ≤ .004 and a significant positive relationship between family resilience and selfesteem, where r61= .484, p ≤ .0001. Further, regression analysis indicated that family resilience was a significant predictor of severity of depression and self-esteem. The obtained results supported the hypotheses of the study.
