The correlates of various stages of help-seeking, including perceived need for professional help, seeking such help, & from which professionals participants sought help were studied. 1792 subjects in the National Comorbidity Survey (1990-1992) diagnosed with mood, anxiety, or substance disorder were included. Mood disorders, comorbid mood & anxiety disorders, & mental disorders associated with impairment in role functioning or suicidality (ideation, plans, or attempts) were strong predictors of perceived need.
