Assessing the information is how the individual assess the health information they had received (Greene, 2009). An example would be an AA high school or college student being diagnosed with mild depression and anxiety by their school psychiatrist. Once diagnosed, the student would begin assessing whether the diagnosis needs to be disclosed to family or friends. Before disclosing, there are five potentially overlapping factors that may affect their decision: “stigma, prognosis, symptoms, preparation, and relevance”. The perception of stigma is likely to reduce the chances of disclosing medical diagnosis. An example of stigma would be the culture stigma among AA and NHPI when disclosing having a mental health problem. The prognosis, or outcome of the disease, is it treatable, terminal, or chronic can influence the decision to disclose as well. If symptoms are identifiable, visually or emotionally, it would impact the individual’s choice of disclosure to others. An example would be a NHPI college student having visual self-inflicted scars on their wrists. If someone recognized the scars, they would question the individual, thus, possibly disclosing they are suffering a mental illness. Another consideration would be the individual’s need for preparation after diagnosis. If the individual is diagnosed with major depression, a psychiatrist would recommend taking anti-depressants to prepare and protect the person. The last consideration is whether the diagnoses are relevant to others. For example, if a child is suffering from anxiety and depression due to family problems, it is relevant for the parents to be notifying their child is suffering due to their marital issues.Assessing the receiver is “analyzing the potential receiver” It is the process of evaluating the association between the individual and the receiver. There are multiple considerations to take when assessing the receiver. First consideration would be the quality of the relationship, which depends on how close one feels and how much they trust others with private health information. Second consideration would be the anticipated reaction after disclosure, which can result in a positive or negative response. Last consideration that is closely related to anticipate reaction would be confidence in response. Confident in response “reflect the degree to which the discloser is certain that the intended target (receiver) will respond to the disclosed information in the way the discloser anticipated”. When confident, the individual will become more efficacious about disclosing.
