Overview of Mental Health seeks to introduce counsellors to current understanding about lived experience and the effects of stigma and discrimination for people experiencing mental illness and their significant others. There is opportunity to develop knowledge about the types of disorders as they are currently understood and outlined in the DSM-V or ICD-10. Students will also develop assessment skills to recognize the range of signs and symptoms and facilitate effective communication with other mental health professionals. Emphasis will be placed on the lived experience and recovery model, and a person-centred approach.
