We tested whether mental health workers were prejudiced against personality disorders – here’s what we found

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

It has long been known that labels, such as mental health diagnoses, can lead people to jump to damaging and erroneous conclusions. The recent Germanwings plane crash led to media stories attributing what happened to the pilot’s depression, and many concluded that there needed to be better ways of excluding depressed people from being pilots.
