Well-being among persons at risk of psychosis: the role of self-labeling, shame, and stigma stress.

Well-being among persons at risk of psychosis: the role of self-labeling, shame, and stigma stress. When young people at risk of psychosis experience early signs of the disorder or early intervention, they may label themselves as "mentally ill." However, empirical data related to the potentially harmful effects of self-labeling and stigma among young people at risk of psychosis are lacking. This study used a stress-coping model to examine mechanisms by which stigma may exert an impact on young people at risk of psychosis. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Psychiatric services (Washington, D.C.)
