Abstract

The primary objective of this project was to find correlations between demographics and beliefs towards the mentally ill. The secondary objective is to educate people on mental illnesses, such as depression and anxiety. The issue of mental illness in this country should be a concern for everyone given how the past couple of years have seen such a mass loss of life and a great change in how we live. The motivation for this project are my own issues with mental health as well as my parent’s openness about theirs, which has encouraged me to pursue a project that could help people. The main problem is misinformation surrounding mental illnesses which leads to stigmatization. This project was different from previous studies as this study’s results will directly indicate which diseases need the most coverage on the website which would help fight misinformation. The hypothesis for this study is that depression and anxiety will be the most understood mental illnesses and will be the least stigmatized.

The independent variables are the people answering the survey, the dependent are the opinions on what mental illnesses are the most dangerous/stigmatized, and the constants are the questions asked. I hope to find which mental illnesses are the most stigmatized and that the website is adequate in helping people. This project helps educate people on mental illnesses.
