New poll shows stigma prevents people from getting help for depression


A new Harris poll created by the National Alliance for Mental Illness or NAMI, the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization, reveals surprising findings, including an increase in reported stigma, creating barriers to treatment for depression from 72% in 2009 to 84% today.

NAMI’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Ken Duckworth, joins Gayle Guyardo on Bloom to discuss the findings.

Bloom airs in 40 more markets across the country, with a reach of approximately 36 million households, and in Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Madison, WI.

You can watch Bloom in the Tampa Bay Market weekdays at Noon on WTTA: Spectrum 1006; Frontier 514; DirecTV 38; Dish 38; Comcast 43, and look for Bloom early mornings on WFLA News Channel 8.
