Abstract

Mental illness is a serious health problem across the world. Over the past 30 years, considerable effort has been expended to provide the public with knowledge about mental health problems, to correct false beliefs concerning the mentally ill, and to increase the accessibility of mental health services for those in need (Jorm, 2011; Leaf, Bruce, Tischler & Holzer, 1987). Evidence indicates that over this period the public has become more knowledgeable about mental illness (Crocetti, Spiro & Siassi, 1974; Jorm, 2000, 2011) and while there has been an increase in the proportion of the population seeking help for mental and emotional problems this figure remains low (Andrew & Henderson, 2000; Veroff, Kulka & Douvan, 1981 ). It is the aim in this chapter to discuss why this might be so.
