This multivariate survey research design intends to investigate the overall goodness of fit of the mental health attribution model with psychological help-seeking attitudes. Under the assumption that mental health causal beliefs and mental health control beliefs influence psychological helpseeking attitudes, this study examined the relationship of the different dimensions of mental health attribution and psychological help-seeking attitudes. The present study posited that mental health attribution significantly contribute to psychological help-seeking attitudes via mental health locus of causality, mental health causal stability, mental health causal globality, and mental health locus of control. Analyses indicated that mental health attribution accounted for 4% of the overall variance in attitude towards psychological help-seeking. Furthermore, mental health external locus of control was found to significantly contribute to the variance. The results suggest that mental health attribution may not be a good predictor of attitude towards psychological help-seeking.
