Stigmatization and Receptivity to Mental Health Services Among Recently Bereaved Adults

Archived Abstract of Former PSC Researcher

Johnson, J.G., M.B. First, S. Block, L.C. Vanderwerker, Kara Zivin, and B.H. Zhang. 2009. "Stigmatization and Receptivity to Mental Health Services Among Recently Bereaved Adults." Death Studies, 33(8): 691-711.

Severe grief symptoms, treatment receptivity, attitudes about grief, and stigmatization concerns were assessed in a community-based sample of 135 widowed participants in the Yale Bereavement Study. There was a statistically significant association between the severity of grief symptoms and reported negative reactions from friends and family members. However, more than 90% of the respondents with complicated grief, a severe grief disorder, reported that they would be relieved to know that having such a diagnosis was indicative of a recognizable psychiatric condition, and 100% reported that they would be interested in receiving treatment for their severe grief symptoms.
