Dont' be afraid, it does not infect : Survet of public attitudes to individualse with mental illness (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet var att kartlägga om det finns någon skillnad i attityd till personer med psykisk sjukdom och om det var beroende på ålder och/eller kön. En enkätundersökning gjordes och mätinstrumentet i studien är nytt, men påståendena kommer från mätinstrumentet CAMI – community attitudes towards mental illness och FABI – fear and behavioural intentions. CAMI och FABI avser mäta attityd, kunskap och erfarenhet men i denna studie valdes att endast plocka ut de frågor som rörde attityder till personer med psykisk sjukdom. Det var total 129 deltagare som valde att svara på enkäten. För att kunna undersöka om det fanns någon skillnad mellan män och kvinnor, om ålder spelade roll eller om kön och ålder tillsammans hade betydelse gjordes en två-vägs ANOVA. Resultaten visade att äldre kvinnor har en mer positiv attityd till personer med psykisk sjukdom, medan äldre mäns attityd sjönk med åldern. 

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to chart if there was any difference in age and/or gender regarding attitudes around people with mental illness. A survey was conducted and the measuring instrument in the study is new, but the claims come from the measuring instrument CAMI – community attitudes towards mental illnessand FABI – fear and behavioural intentions. CAMI and FABI intend to measure attitudes, knowledge and experience, but in this study it was chosen to only pick out the issues that related to attitudes about mental illness. There were a total of 129 participants who chose to answer the questionnaire. To be able to investigate whether there was any difference between men and women, if the age played a role or whether gender and age together had significance, it was chosen to do a two-way ANOVA. The results showed that older women have a more positive attitude towards people with mental illness, while older men’s attitudes were the least positive the older they were.
