6:30PM-8:45PM  MW  BH 204

This course is designed to review the social aspects of mental health
and illness. Although we will touch on biological and psychological
approaches, the course will emphasize sociological approaches to this
topic. We will discuss various issues in the sociology of mental
illness, such as incidence and prevalence, studying and treating
mental illness, theories of mental disorder, social correlates, and
mental health policy. Students will be expected to carry out research,
to participate in weekly discussions, and to present research findings
towards the end of the semester.
