Lies, Class & Depression

I remember reading about a psychology/sociology study that linked adult depression and problems with adjustment to how much the person was lied to as a child.

There was also a correlation with "higher-class" families lying more to their children than "lower-class" families. Can anyone help me find a legitimate source of this study?

Perhaps you're thinking of Malignant Self Love: Narcissism Revisited, by Samuel Vaknin and Lidija Rangelovska? "The Narcissist's Mother" is one of the subtopics explored in the book.

Personal Experience: I was rerely lied to as a child. I had problems with depressed mood. Not to say that being lied to doesn't cause childhood depression, but it's often not that simple.
