Hello HW Forum members,
 
*Permission granted by forum moderator Peter Waite to include post in this forum.

My name is Dr. David Vogel.  I am a Full Professor of Counseling Psychology at Iowa State University (http://www.psychology.iastate.edu/~dvogel/).

The stigmatization of people with mental illness is widespread in our society.  This stigma has been shown to reduce self-esteem, rob people of social opportunities, and prevent people who would benefit from mental health services from seeking care.  Accurate measurement of this stigma is an essential part of the high-quality research upon which effective anti-stigma social-marketing campaigns are built.

I am conducting an online research survey study on the validity of a new scale designed to accurately measure the stigma surrounding mental illness, and how this stigma impacts individuals’ willingness to seek help from a mental health professional.

This study is being conducted with the permission of the Iowa State University Office of Responsible Research (IRB# 11-265; http://www.compliance.iastate.edu/irb/) and according to the ethical guidelines of the American Psychological Association (http://www.apa.org/ethics/code/index.aspx).

I would like to invite the HW forum members to confidentially participate in this survey study, which can be viewed here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/StigmaMI

Thank you for taking the time to consider my request,
David
