Unfortunately, there is little research exploring the attitude of nurses towards mental disorders and people affected thereof, the possible correlates of such attitude have not been widely studied. The potential role of the nurses in anti-stigma activity is yet unexplored in these countries. This is a short review of literature of the literature available regarding the attitude of nurses towards mentally ill in developing countries and appropriate recommendations.
