Inertial mass, gravitational mass, and the Higgs


In other words, the higgs mechanism contributes directly to the stress-energy of the particle - did I understand correctly?

If so, allow me to refine my understanding with another question. In the higgs model, does the contribution to the inertial mass and the contribution to the gravitational mass appear as separate terms, or one and the same?
