This thesis explores the relationships between television viewing habits, interpersonal communication, personal experience, and college students' attitudes toward mental health. Using a survey, results revealed that talking with friends or family members about mental health challenges is correlated with positive attitudes toward mental illness. This thesis offers support for peer-to-peer mental health programs on campus.
