Course Description and Objectives
Although students will be expected to learn the
basic classification of mental disorders, the bulk
of material is NOT clinical.
Instead, focus is instead on critical thinking
about the issues of mental health and illness
from a societal perspective.
Specific focus will be on how history, geography,
culture, politics, and economics influence our
thinking on issues of mental illness and health.

A plea
Using internet sources is always a
potentially dangerous game, but especially
when it comes to examining mental illness.
Psychiatry, especially, has a incredibly
determined and vocal set of detractors,
many of whom do not hesitate to totally
fabricate facts to suit their agenda. Please
be careful and think critically about
sources you might come across the
internet is not always the best option.

On Plagiarism
More than twenty students caught in four
years...I really, really don’t want to add to
this number.
Students WILL be reported and WILL fail
the assignment, test, or potentially even
the course itself.
