Explore current issues in mental health from both a national and global perspective.
Explore current issues in mental health from both a national and global perspective. The need to understand individuals holistically - taking into account cultural beliefs, values and attitudes, and social context - is gaining importance due to the complexity of mental health problems and the increased need for services for different ethnic groups and for individuals whose lives have changed due to civil unrest.
During this module, you’ll examine how mental health is represented in the news, on social media and in fictional sources, including films and literature; you’ll further explore how this portrayal can impact upon interpretations of mental health and mental illness within a given society. You’ll study the delivery of culturally appropriate health care and how this knowledge can be applied in practice.
