1. Clarke, Desiree A. Comparison of Public Mental Health Stigma in Youth.

Degree: Educational Specialist (EdS), Psychology, 2020, Utah State University

The present study looked at mental health stigma in youth. Mental health stigma is devaluing, disgracing and disfavoring individuals with mental illness. Participants aged 11-14 completed a measure to rate their stigmatizing beliefs toward peers with either ADHD, depression, or asthma. Their ratings were compared for significance between genders and for the three different conditions: ADHD, depression, and asthma. Significant differences were found between the stigma ratings for asthma, depression and ADHD. ADHD had significantly higher stigma ratings than asthma, and depression had significantly higher stigma ratings than ADHD (on some, but not all, areas rated) and had consistently higher ratings than asthma. Only one factor showed a significant effect for gender, and on all other factors there were no significant difference in stigma ratings between male and female respondents. It is hoped that the current study will aid in the general understanding of mental health stigma among youth, as well as lead to additional research on mental health stigma. Advisors/Committee Members: Gretchen Gimpel Peacock, Marietta Veeder, Kathryn Sperry, ;.
