Inside the Research
Question: Will a brief web-based intervention, cognitive bias modification for help-seeking stigma (CBM-HS), improve help-seeking for suicidal ideation?
Strategy: A total of 78 young adults with current suicidal ideation who are not currently in treatment and who report elevated levels of help-seeking stigma will be randomly assigned to one of three conditions: (1) CBM-HS; (2) CBM-Placebo; or (3) psychoeducation. Participants will complete assessments at baseline, mid-intervention, postintervention, and 2-month follow-up.
Impact: Improved help-seeking among individuals with suicidal ideation.
