Consequently, the lack of mental health literacy had a significant impact on decision making for treatment and compliance (Ogorchukwu et al, 235). It makes PWMDs more apprehensive about using medication as a part of their treatment regime and makes it harder for PWMD to manage their

Higher value of mean test score for those identified as Bully by teachers in comparison to those identified as Non-bully for each Response category tends to imply face validity of the test. t -ratios for testing equality of means and F- ratios for testing equality of variances between bully and non-bully groups for different response categories are given in Table – 2 Observations i) Mean test score for the combined group declined steadily with reduction in number of response categories.
