|Student Contribution Band:||Band 1|
|Administered by:||School of Arts & Social Sciences|
This subject is designed for social work and welfare practitioners who wish to explore further the range of mental health issues which impact not only on specialist mental health agencies, but on a wide range of other areas in generic and specialist practice. The framework of the subject is based on the social construction of mental health in cultural, community and individual contexts, with its derivative social justice and human rights implications. It is assumed that students will have already touched on some aspects of mental health discourse in their undergraduate studies and will bring with them a sound overview of social work theories in which to explore and expand this discourse. Students will be encouraged to integrate their professional and personal experiences into the subject material in the context of a personal philosophy of practice.
