Abstract

The author describes a study designed to assess stability and change in mental health over a five-year period, using 123 subjects chosen from the larger Stirling County survey sample. The results showed: 1) a tendency toward stabilization of mental health status, and 2) when there was change, it was usually in the direction of recovery. The subjects were grouped into four main types of mental health status; the differences among the groups in demographic characteristics and psychological attributes are described.
