A cross-sectional research approach. Data were collected using a questionnaire, ie respondents' knowledge of ODGJ was measured by the MAKS questionnaire, and the stigma questionnaire for students and nurses (MICA). A total of 115 student and nurse respondents were sampled in this study. The sampling technique used is simple random sampling. Statistical analysis using Spearman Rank correlation test. Correlation value obtained (r) 0.02 (p <0.05). The statistical results interpret the existence of a meaningful relationship between knowledge and the formation of stigma in society. There is a relationship associated with knowledge with the formation of stigma. The knowledge contributes greatly to the formation of a positive mindset of students and nurses about ODGJ (People with Mental Disorders). The role of nurses as educators is needed to block the increasing stigma. Continuity assistance and cross-sector collaboration are needed to succeed in a stigma-free program.
