Failure of a Moral Enterprise: Attitudes of the Public Toward Mental Illness
Sarbin, Theodore R.; Mancuso, James C.
J Consult Clin Psychol, 35, 2, 149-73, Oct '70
This analysis of social survey reports and other data points to the conclusion that the public tends to declare negative valuations on persons diagnosed as mentally ill. However, the public tends to be more tolerant of deviant conduct when it is not described with mental illness labels. (Author/KJ)
