Past research studies in the area of help-seeking behavior included investigating variables like gender, preferred sources of help, socioeconomic status, age, personality, self-esteem and social context. Models on help-seeking behavior include Darley-Latane's three question model (1970), Piliavin's (1972) linear sequential model for help-utilization, Shulman, Rosen and Gross's (1976) model of how widows utilizes resources available to them to cope with bereavement, and Gross and McMulllen's (1983) help-seeking decision model. However, perplexity remains with regards to understanding why individuals who needs help most do not seek help (e.g. in mental health settings, parents of children with behavioral problems or alcoholics etc.).
