Attitudes towards help-seeking and stigma among young people at risk for psychosis


Rüsch, Nicolas; Heekeren, Karsten; Theodoridou, Anastasia; Dvorsky, Diane; Müller, Mario; Paust, Tobias; Corrigan, Patrick W; Walitza, Susanne; Rössler, Wulf (2013). Attitudes towards help-seeking and stigma among young people at risk for psychosis. Psychiatry Research, 210(3):1313-1315.

Abstract

The role of self-labeling as 'mentally ill' and of stigma-related stress for help-seeking among young people at risk for psychosis is unknown. Stronger self-labeling and less stigma stress predicted better attitudes towards psychiatric medication and psychotherapy, controlling for clinical and sociodemographic variables. Interventions could target stigma-related stress to increase help-seeking.
