Longitudinal course of self-labeling, stigma stress and well-being among young people at risk of psychosis


Rüsch, Nicolas; Müller, Mario; Heekeren, Karsten; Theodoridou, Anastasia; Metzler, Sibylle; Dvorsky, Diane; Corrigan, Patrick W; Walitza, Susanne; Rössler, Wulf (2014). Longitudinal course of self-labeling, stigma stress and well-being among young people at risk of psychosis. Schizophrenia Research, 158(1-3):82-84.

Abstract

Stigma may undermine the well-being of young people at risk of psychosis. We therefore measured self-labeling, stigma variables and well-being at baseline and again one year later among 77 at-risk participants. An increase in self-labeling during this period predicted heightened stigma stress after one year and a decrease in stigma stress predicted better well-being at follow-up, controlling for symptoms, psychiatric comorbidity and sociodemographic variables. Besides early intervention programmes, strategies are needed to reduce the public stigma associated with at-risk status and to support young people at risk to better cope with self-labeling and stigma stress.
