Abstract

Despite increasing interest in mental health education to reduce stigma, few studies assess changes in self-reported and intended discriminatory behavior. The current study evaluated the psychometric quality of the Reported and Intended Behavior Scale with adolescents. Participants were 11 to 15-year-olds from England (N = 1,032, 58% female). Confirmatory factor analysis established a two-factor structure. The intended behavior scale showed high internal consistency (α = .94, ω = .94) and observed ceiling effects. A moderate correlation was found between intended behavior and stigma-related knowledge (r = .39). The average reading age was 14 years; however, the introductory text had a high reading age and might benefit from being simplified in future use. Females and early adolescents (aged 11–13 years) reported more positive intended behaviors overall, with some group differences in item response. Multigroup confirmatory factor analysis revealed partial scalar measurement invariance. Future research should assess self-reported and intended behavior and be cautious when investigating mean differences for gender and age.
