    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.24, No.3, pp. 439-456, 2022, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2022.018030

    Abstract Mental health literacy (MHL) refers to knowledge and attitudes that shape the recognition, management, and prevention of mental disorders.

    Soshi Kodama1,*, Koichi Shido2, Nozomu Ikeda3

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.23, No.3, pp. 331-352, 2021, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2021.016337

    Abstract Despite depression being a global mental health disorder, many people with depression do not seek psychiatric help. In particular, it has been reported that only 15.7% of medical students seek treatment. A longer duration of untreated illness (DUI) leads to clinically poor results. To shorten the DUI, the mental health literacy (MHL) with regard to depression needs to be improved, although it is unclear which MHL components will improve the help-seeking process. Additionally, the existing MHL scale for depression is poorly validated for structural validity. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to develop an… More >
