    • Abstract:
      The article focuses on the attitudes of families toward caring for a mentally ill member in the home and presents research on family variables independent of treatment program and patient-family-professional staff relationships. A key element in families' willingness to accept responsibility for the care of a mentally ill member is their tolerance of the deviant behavior associated with mental illness. This article examines several propositions derived from the Hill model to identify determinants of families' tolerance level toward mentally ill family members. The relationship between responsibility and tolerance is low and not statistically significant. Neither overall family functioning nor community involvement is significantly correlated with tolerance of deviance and therefore provides support for the Hill model. The findings of the study show no significant differences among respondents when categorized by kinship group. Similarly, family coping resources, level of social functioning, income, and community connectedness are unrelated to tolerance level.
