Abstract

The authors evaluated the impact of short-term intensive instruction by mental health professionals on police officers' attitudes toward the mentally ill and on their ability to distinguish between mental illness and other behavior. Compared with a control group who did not receive the special training the 80 officers showed increased interest in and sympathy for psychiatric problems.
