I think you will have to wrap each character in quotes:

slideplot hbar rep78, neg(1 2 3) pos(4 5) by(foreign) percent ///
legend(subtitle("FIM Scale") span cols(7))  ///
ytitle("Percent of the population with these scores") ///
 title("AdmissionFIM_Comprehension") ///
  l2("I" "m" "p" "a" "i" "r" "m" "e" "n" "t" " " "G" "r" "o" "u" "p"
"s", orient(h) size(*.8) )
