 Abstract
The purpose of this study is to investigate the role of help-seeking and concealment in the relationship between perfectionism, depression, and anxiety. The participants were 252 university students, and analyses were conducted using PASW 18.0 and Amos 8.0. Help-seeking was confirmed to be a mediating variable between self-oriented perfectionism, depression, and anxiety. That is, self-oriented perfectionism had an effect on depression and anxiety through help-seeking. Also, concealment was a partially mediating variable between socially prescribed perfectionism, depression, and anxiety. The need to develop counseling and education approaches as a special intervention is discussed. The approaches are meant to reduce socially prescribed perfectionism and concealment. Limitations and implications for further study are suggested.
