Self-Stigma, Mental Health Literacy, and Health Outcomes in Integrated Care
Allison Crowe, PhD; Patrick R. Mullen, PhD; and Kerry Littlewood, PhD
The authors describe research on the self-stigma of mental illness and help seeking, mental health literacy, and health outcomes in an integrated care medical center. Results revealed that self-stigma of mental illness and self-stigma of seeking help had an inverse relationship with mental health literacy. No statistically significant relationships were found between health outcomes, either type of self-stigma, and mental health literacy. The authors discuss these and other findings and offer research and counseling implications.
