Abstract:This study investigated the relationship between causal beliefs about psychosis and marital instability and help-seeking preferences of 326 Nigerian immigrants who completed a 153-item survey. Results showed differential endorsement of intrapersonal, interpersonal, personal-circumstantial, and supernatural causal beliefs, with greater acceptance of the first two dimensions for psychosis and marital instability, respectively. The higher the Nigerian immigrants' educational levels, the less they accepted supernatural causation. Endorsing supernatural causation of psychosis, as well as personal-circumstantial causation of marital instability, was positively related to preference for informal help-seeking. Length of stay in the US was not related to preference for formal help-seeking for psychosis, or informal help-seeking for marital instability. However, it was positively related to preference for formal help-seeking for marital instability; and negatively related to preference for informal help-seeking for psychosis. Findings suggest that causal beliefs may affect help-seeking preferences. Culturally-sensitive guidelines for treating mental illness and marital instability are proposed.
