Here are reported preliminary results of a study on the effect of an intervention to improve psychology students' views of persons with schizophrenia (PCS), provided by using a digital platform during the COVID-19 pandemic. The intervention, developed with the collaboration of persons with severe mental disorder, was administered to second-year students of the Master Degree of Applied Psychology at the University of Campania. Before the intervention and one month from its completion, participants were asked to complete online the Questionnaire on the Opinions about mental disorders. Compared to the initial assessments (N=65), at follow-up (N=62) students were: more convinced of the usefulness of psychological interventions and the possibility of recovery in schizophrenia and the ability of PCS to refer their mental disorders to the psychologist; more skeptical about the dangerousness and unpredictability of PCS and the need to treat them differently from other clients.
