Criterion Measure:

The BMI scale which was developed by Hirai and Clum is used to assess the attitudes
towards mental illness in nursing students. The BMI (Beliefs towards Mental Illness scale) is
a 21-item self-report measure of negative stereotypical views of mental illness. There is two
subscales based on factor analysis:

(i) Negative Attitude, (65-105)

(ii) Positive Attitude (21-64)

Items are rated on a five-point Likert scale ranging from completely disagree (1) to
completely agree (5), with higher scores reflecting more negative attitude.
