Abstract
This study attempted to explore the attitudes among individuals from psychology profession by direct and indirect measures, in order to examine the effect of education to anti-stigma. 49 female psychology undergraduates were recruiting to complete the explicit and implicit attitudes mental illness attitudes with the Social Distance Scale (SDS) and the Implicit Association Test (IAT). The results showed that the implicit effect of IAT was not significant and the scores of SDS were substantially below the midpoints of this scale, and that explicit and implicit measures of mental illness attitudes were unrelated. In our sample, female psychology students did not have significant mental illness stigma in implicit and explicit measures. Our findings suggested that modern professional education may be effective on improving student’s attitudes toward mental illness.
