Many college students have a mental illness but are unlikely to seek help due to stigma. This study examined the relationship between personal stigma, perceived public stigma, self-stigma, and active help-seeking regarding anxiety and depression among college students. Results indicate different stigma types negatively influence active help-seeking.
