Abstract Attention focused on the attitudes of 140 psychology students toward the mentally ill and community care, on the dual assumptions (a) that relevant professional groups must share a basically humanistic and tolerant approach, and (b) that tertiary institutions have a significant role to play in the inculcation of such attitudes. It was demonstrated that the attitudes of second, third, and fourth year students were less authoritarian and more inclined toward mental health ideology than the attitudes of first year students. Comparisons were drawn between the present study and a recent investigation into the attitudes of secondary school students. Results were discussed within the framework of limitations imposed by the nature of the study and the implications for future research. 1977 Australian Psychological Society
