Attitudes towards Mental Health among United States International University Africa Students

Abstract:

Stigma and discrimination are serious problems faced by individuals with mental health problems, and may prevent these individuals from seeking the treatment they need. The present study aimed to examine the attitudes held by USIU-A students towards mental health problems. Data were collected from classes in various courses, at both undergraduate and graduate levels, at the university, including Journalism, International Business Administration, International Relations, and Psychology. Data were collected using the Attitudes towards Mental Health Problems Scale. Data were then analyzed using the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS), and results were presented. The analysis revealed that there were no differences in attitudes based on gender, nationality, or major. However, older respondents were found to have more positive attitudes than younger ones. Additionally, Christian respondents showed more negative attitudes than non-Christian ones. The results of the study showed that attitudes to mental health problems are influenced by age and religion, but are not influenced by gender, major, or nationality.
