Criticl. Appr. to Mental Health and Madness
This course critically examines mental health and madness, challenging the traditional focus on pathologization and medicalization. Guided by critical approaches that are anti-oppressive, anti-racist and decolonizing, students will explore how some social, economic, political and historical practices may negatively affect mental well-being and how others may be healing. Through reframing and reflecting, students will begin to create their own critical practice with respect to mental health policy, promotion and care.
