Help-seeking has a complicated relationship with the stigma of mental illness. And stigma, unfortunately, doesn’t just end at the edge of the helping professions. In this presentation, the research is addressed on how to identify the elements of internalized stigma that may color and impair clinicians’ own help-seeking or help-avoidance behaviors. This presentation also addresses how to plan for and increase appropriate self-care behavior and how to recognize and fight stigma both within and outside the clinical profession.
