ABSTRACT
The article reports on the validation of the Mental Illness Beliefs Inventory (MIBI). The authors say the lack of objective criteria for mental disorders has led to their listed beliefs regarding mental disorder. They report that MIBI can be used to investigate various research questions. Citing the example of social workers referring clients for medication, the authors ask what role the belief in the medical model plays in such decisions. They believe that mental health practitioners' examination of their beliefs may yield useful treatment information.
