Some Consequences of Changing People's Views Regarding the Nature of Mental Illness
Farina, Amerigo; And Others
Journal of Abnormal Psychology, 87, 2, 272-9, Apr 78

In two identically performed studies, two messages (one describing mental illness as a disease and the other as a product of social learning) were effective in changing beliefs. (Editor/RK)
