This chapter examines pathways to the service system and the effects of stigma on both access to and utilization of mental health services. It first presents an overview of the process of seeking mental health treatment in community-based settings and briefly discusses stigma and financial barriers to mental health care. It then explores some of the most significant public health campaigns targeting the stigma associated with mental illness and treatment seeking. Finally, it examines a range of policy initiatives that have sought to eliminate or reduce financial barriers that stand between treatment need and treatment receipt.
