COLLEGE STUDENT STRESS AND MENTAL HEALTH: EXAMINATION OF STIGMATIC VIEWS ON MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELING
Michigan Sociological Review
This study investigated the effect of college student stigmatic views on mental health counseling use while controlling for stress and mental health. Results revealed three key findings. As students' stigmatic views increased, they were less willing to use counseling services. Greater depression levels predicted greater willingness to use counseling service. More adaptive coping methods increased willingness to use counseling services. These findings guided policy recommendations suggesting social marketing campaigns, augmenting specific health related academic courses.
