This chapter builds on previous research that examines the relative effects of services and stigma among individuals in community health care by extending measures of both services and stigma, and by examining the relationship between them, in order to better determine their implications for self-concept and well-being.

In particular we thank Terrence Dalton and Frank Sepetauc, from CSS, for their help with logistics and their support of this effort.

Dugan, Mary Gallagher, Kristen Marcussen, Kristin Mickelson, R. Scott Olds, Elizabeth Piatt, and James Werner.
