Reducing self-stigma and increasing treatment-seeking intentions among youth with depressive symptoms: A mixed-methods study
We Want to Hear Your Thoughts About Stigma and Depression
Sponsor: Depression Award Internal NYSPI
Enrolling: Male and Female Patients
IRB Number: 8366
Contact: Samantha Jankowski, MA: 917-243-1570 /
Additional Study Information: We are conducting research to explore the level of self-stigma around depression, racial/ethnic and cultural experiences, and barriers to care (e.g., embarrassment, limited access, low expectations/motivation). Self-stigma refers to negative beliefs a person has about themself due to their mental illness. We are looking for Latinx or Black young adults ages 18-25 who self-identify with a diagnosis of depression to participate in the study to participate in individual interviews. We will use what we learn to create videos of people who share their story and hopefully reduce stigma. The individual interview will take place remotely using HIPAA-compliant Zoom and will be approximately 45 minutes long. Participants will be compensated $25.
