Attitudes toward Professional Psychological Help Seeking in South Asian Students: Role of Stigma and Gender
Arora, Prerna G.; Metz, Kristina; Carlson, Cindy I.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v44 n4 p263-284 Oct 2016
This study examined (a) the roles of perceived and personal stigma on attitudes toward professional psychological help seeking and (b) the effects of these constructs across gender in South Asians. Personal stigma and being male was negatively associated with attitudes toward professional psychological help seeking; no difference in the association between personal and perceived stigma and attitudes across genders was found. These findings have implications for the engagement of South Asians in mental health services in the United States.
