Synopsis: There is a general lack of research on attitudes about stigmatization of and appropriate mental health treatment for youth with mental health difficulties, and within that research, there are two areas that are particularly under explored. One area is the perspectives of young people themselves, and another is how attitudes about stigmatization and treatment may vary according to the type of mental health difficulty that a young person experiences. Knowing more about young people's attitudes can contribute to better-designed efforts to increase service utilization and to combat stigmatization. This presentation describes findings from a survey of a nationally representative sample of 1,318 children and adolescents aged 8-18.
