Children's Beliefs About the Causes of Childhood Depression and ADHD: A Study of StigmatizationPsychiatric Services (2009)
AbstractAttribution theory suggests that beliefs about the causes of mental disorders have an influence on stigmatizing attitudes and behaviors toward persons with mental illness. Findings from attribution theory-informed studies have implications for antistigmatization efforts, in which education about causation is typically a central strategy for reducing negative attitudes toward people with mental disorders.
