dc.description.abstractThe barriers to help-seeking for mental health issues in adolescents were investigated in a sample of 125 secondary school students. The relationship between resistance to help-seeking and self-esteem was investigated. Differences in levels of resistance to help-seeking were looked at with regard to age group, gender, school demographic and whether participants knew someone with a mental illness. Data was collected using the Barriers to Adolescents Seeking Help scale (Kuhl et al., 1997), Rosenberg’s (1965) Self-Esteem Scale, General Health Questionnaire (Short Format) (Goldberg, 1992) and two open-ended self-report questions. There were significant differences in levels of resistance to help=seeking reported for different age groups. A moderate negative relationship between self-esteem and resistance to help-seeking was also established. Finally, a strong negative correlation between self-esteem and general health was reported. Directions for future research would be to attain a larger sample and to explore the possibility of carrying out a longitudinal study.en
