Background: Health literacy has been shown to influence recognition of and appropriate treatment seeking behaviors. Health professionals play a key role in developing the health literacy of community members and supporting early intervention programs. It is vital that they have a high level of health literacy. Mental health literacy enables health professionals to detect early signs of mental disorder in patient populations and intervene promptly. Mental health literacy has received much less attention than literacy regarding physical health issues. Low levels of mental health literacy have been identified in many countries as an area requiring focused attention. In the UAE mental health problems are also prevalent in the population; however reports indicate the persistence of stigma, lack of awareness, and underdeveloped services. The UAE government has placed mental health in the top 5 health priorities requiring focused attention. Children and adolescents suffering from a chronic health illness are at higher risk of developing mental health problems such as anxiety and depression due to the nature and consequences of their illnesses. Undetected mental illness in a child or adolescent will disrupt the vital developmental tasks required for health and vitality in adulthood. Early detection and referral to appropriate treatment is essential to avoid more serious mental illness in the future. It is imperative that healthcare professionals caring for this age group have well-developed mental health literacy skills as an essential component of their professional skills. Objectives: This study seeks to provide a cross-sectional measure of mental health literacy in health care professionals caring for children and adolescents in the United Arab Emirates. Design: Cross-sectional survey design, with a large representative sample from ALL UAE emirates. Utilizing the ‘Attitudes and Beliefs about 3 Different Health Problems’ survey. This survey is adapted from Jorm et al’s (1997) protocol and Slewa-Younan et al’s (2014) survey with further modifications by the UAE researchers on the team to ensure the vignettes and questions are valid to the UAE context.
