Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, v47 n8 p912 Aug 2008
A national survey conducted to explore the stigmatization encountered by children and adolescents experiencing depression and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is presented. Results show that peer stigmatization toward children with these disorders is relatively a constant and universal problem, with depression more stigmatized than ADHD.
