    Article - En anglais

    The aim of this study was to investigate whether Asian immigrants in Australia differed from Anglo-Australians in terms of attitudes towards mental illness, and knowledge of mental health services.

    A questionnaire was administered to 140 university students, including 63 Anglo-Australian students, 47 Asian students, and 30 students from European backgrounds.

    The results showed that there was a significant ethnic difference in terms of attitudes towards mental illness, and knowledge of mental health services.

    Furthermore, Asians who spoke a language other than English at home knew less about services for acute mental illness.
