Abstract

This survey attempted to measure evaluative, cognitive, and predicted behavioral components of the attitudes of Fort Hays Kansas State College students towards the High Plains Comprehensive Community Mental Health Center, the Psychological Service Center at Fort Hays Kansas State College, and The House. Students at Fort Hays Kansas State College served as Ss. The sample (N=307) was stratified by sex, year in school, and major field of study. Significant differences were found between Ss responses to the three facilities with respect to familiarity, reputation, confidentiality, social compatibility, and perceived appropriateness of facilities for specific problems. The House was the facility most familiar to students and its staff was perceived as the most friendly. The Mental Health Center was seen as the most competent and appropriate for serious problems. Ss were relatively unfamiliar with the Psychological Service Center and ranked it least favorable on many items.
