SOC 2450 - Sociology of Mental Health

Mental health is more than just a biological or genetic issue. Our society plays a significant role in the emotional and mental health of our citizens. This course explores the social impacts on mental health. It discusses how our society thinks, defines, and reacts to mental health issues, including our social stigma related to diagnoses and treatment, and the course investigates how and why access to resources differs by race/ethnicity, gender, and social class. Finally, the course examines our country's policies related to mental health, and what we can do to help improve those policies and our communities.
