This course provides participants with an overview of public health approaches in mental health. The overall aim of the course is to equip students with the knowledge to understand and interpret key epidemiological data, healthcare systems for people with a mental illness, the interaction between mental health and social and physical health factors, mental health across the lifespan, public health interventions such as preventive healthcare and mental health promotion, and mental health policies. Students will have the opportunity to discuss and explore controversial issues and will draw on their own experiences and those of their peers to understand the practical application of these concepts.
Prerequisite: Students who are not enrolled in a postgraduate program in the School of Public Health and Community Medicine will need to provide approval from their program authority and the approval of the course convenor to email@example.com
