Abstract

Through the use of an extensive literature review the author compares research in regards to different populations contrasting individuals from America and Argentina and compares the difference of stigma on mental health that these individuals hold. Through this literature review, it was concluded that individuals in the United States stigmatize mental illness on a higher level than Argentinians do. This is in fact due to the culture in Argentina being more open about talking about their feelings and emotions.
