Development of the Mental Illness Attitude and Stereotype Questionnaire—Preliminary Study
Abstract: The current research is a self-developed questionnaire, which investigates the notion of “attitudes and stereotypes toward mental illness”. Due to lack of similar questionnaire in Asia area, and the cultural differences which may not be analogical from western research, this questionnaire is de-veloped based on questionnaire from western studies, yet, more cultural adaptable questions are added to make the questionnaire more accommodated to Chinese community. As mentioned, this questionnaire aims to measure attitudes and stereotypes that individuals may obtain toward people who suffer from mental illness, by such it also employs a variety of settings to see how one would react when they encounter the mentally ill in different situations. SPSS software is applied on descriptive analysis, reliability analysis, and exploration factor analysis, as to explore factors that prompt to negative reactions; factors are categorized and named after analysis according to their meaning. As a result, the current questionnaire including all the variety of settings that one may approach persons who are mentally ill in daily life, is highly adaptable be an useful instrument to measure attitudes and stereotypes toward mental illnesses especially in Chinese community in the future. In addition, suggestions and advices are made for further research, in particularly to be the references for application for clinical practices.
