dc.description.abstract The present investigation is a descriptive experimental study with two conditions (experimental and control conditions). The main aim was to develop, implement and evaluate a program directed at educating health professionals and families to accept and manage people presenting with mental health problems. The second aim was to teach mental health promotion strategies. To this end, a questionnaire was administered to a group of health professionals and relatives. Results suggest that the participants' training programme significantly improved attitudes and increased knowledge and understanding about mental illness. en_US
