The aim of the first study was to explore children's and adolescents, (10 to 16 years) stigmatizing responses towards hypothetical peers with either ADHD or depression. The aim of the second was to investigate whether a brief on-line intervention could change young adults, (18 to 25 years) attitudes towards help-seeking for mental health problems. Conclusions: Implicit measures may prove to be a useful tool for researchers who are interested in stigma associated with mental health problems in young people and their treatment. Lessons learned from the use of implicit measures in these studies will be highlighted.||Funding Details:||Health Research Board||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Keywords:||Mental Health; Youth; Implicit measures; IAT; CH-IAT; SC-IAT||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Conference Details:||Children's Mental Health and Wellbeing: Impact on outcomes for children and young people, Dublin, 10 December, 2013|
