Abstract
We investigated the range of knowledge about mental health and the attitude toward mentally-ill community residents and the results of the investigation were taken as a foundation of the program of a community mental health project.

The results were as follows

1) The residents of Ansan community showed sympathetic and positive attitude toward the community mental health ideology.

2) The opinion leaders and females had more authoritative and negative tendency to the mentally-ill.

3) The more aged the more negative, conservative, and socially restrictive attitudes were shown toward the mentally-ill.

4) The home-owners had sympathetic attitude toward the mental illness but opposed the establishment of mental health facilities in their community with behavioral reaction.

Therefore, the community education about mental health should be actively and intensively concentrated upon the females, the people of old age, the opinion leaders and the home­owners.
