AbstractAcknowledging the attitude towards mental health problems among healthcare workers is necessary as they are the ones who can encourage other people to seek professional help when in emotional distress. The purpose of the study was to determine whether there is any difference between the two professions in attitudes toward mental health problems and seeking professional help among healthcare employees. The Attitude Towards Mental Health Problems Scale and Attitude Towards Seeking Professional Help Scale were used to gather data. In order to correlate the two variables and compare means, we used inferential statistics after doing descriptive statistics. The findings showed no significant relationship between the attitude toward seeking professional help and mental health problems, however there was a positive correlation between the two variables’ sub-domains. It was also shown that there are significant differences among healthcare professionals when it comes to seeking professional help.
