This study aimed to explore the relationships between stigma and perception of control in individuals diagnosed with a mental illness versus a physical illness. Previous research has shown that mental illness is more stigmatized and viewed as more under the control of the patient than physical illness. Little to no research has examined the relationship between stigma and perceived control. The present study produced mixed results that were somewhat consistent with previous findings.
