Journal/Book: Brit J Clin Psychol. 1996; 35: St Andrews House, 48, Princess Rd, East, Leicester, Leics, England LE1 7DR. British Psychological Soc. 393-397.
Abstract: The utility of the Health Belief Model to explain compliance with depot neuroleptic medication is examined. Perceived severity, susceptibility and benefits were found to be related to compliance, although costs were not. In addition, insight, knowledge about schizophrenia and health locus of control were not found to be related to compliance.
