Relationship between individual characteristics, neighbourhood contexts and help-seeking intentions for mental illness.

Suka M, Yamauchi T, Sugimori H - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: The acceptable fitting model indicated that those who had a tendency to consult about everyday affairs were significantly more likely to express an informal help-seeking intention that was directly associated with a formal help-seeking intention.Those living in a supportive neighbourhood, where neighbours work together to solve neighbourhood problems, were significantly more likely to express an informal help-seeking intention.Adequate health literacy was directly associated with informal and formal help-seeking intentions, along with having an indirect effect on the formal help-seeking intention through developed positive perception of professional help.

Path diagram for help-seeking intentions for mental illness. Rectangles were observed variables. Ellipses were latent variables. Values on the single-headed arrows were standardised regression weights. Values on the double-headed arrows were correlation coefficients. Model fitness: GFI 0.946; AGFI 0.918; RMSEA 0.072 (90% CI 0.068 to 0.075). AGFI, adjusted goodness of fit index; GFI, goodness of fit index; RMSEA, root mean square error of approximation.

BMJOPEN2015008261F2: Path diagram for help-seeking intentions for mental illness. Rectangles were observed variables. Ellipses were latent variables. Values on the single-headed arrows were standardised regression weights. Values on the double-headed arrows were correlation coefficients. Model fitness: GFI 0.946; AGFI 0.918; RMSEA 0.072 (90% CI 0.068 to 0.075). AGFI, adjusted goodness of fit index; GFI, goodness of fit index; RMSEA, root mean square error of approximation.

Mentions: FigureĀ 2 shows the results of path analysis. After trimming paths with non-significant contributions, the final model resulted in a better fit to the data (GFI 0.946; AGFI 0.918; RMSEA 0.072, 90% CI 0.068 to 0.075). An informal help-seeking intention had the greatest direct effect on a formal help-seeking intention. Besides this, psychiatric history, health literacy, perceived effectiveness of professional help and communicative neighbourhood had a direct effect on a formal help-seeking intention. Tendency to consult about everyday affairs and cooperative neighbourhood had an indirect effect on a formal help-seeking intention through its effect on an informal help-seeking intention.
