Abstract: Burnout among mental health care professionals is a serious public health concern in different European countries. This calls for the efforts to explore the unique antecedents of burnout like help seeking stigma. The main purpose of this study is to investigate the correlation between help seeking stigma and burnout in four groups of mental health care professionals (psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and mental health nurses). 231 mental health care professionals completed self-reported questionnaires that consisted of Maslach Burnout Inventory – General Survey (MBI-GS, Schaufeli et al., 1996) and Self-Stigma of Seeking Help (SSOSH) scale (Vogel, Wade, & Haake, 2006). The results revealed no gender differences in burnout and help seeking stigma. Emotional exhaustion was dominating in all groups of professionals, while lack of professional efficacy was the lowest component of burnout. Mental health nurses had the most negative attitudes towards seeking for psychological help when compared to psychologist, psychiatrists and social workers. Self-stigma of seeking help correlated significantly with higher psychologists’ and nurses’ levels of burnout. In conclusion, mental help seeking stigma is positively related to burnout among mental health care professionals, but gender and occupational group might be important for this relation
