Description: Mental Health is defined as a person's condition with regard to their psychological and emotional well-being. Mental illness is defined as health conditions involving changes in emotion, thinking or behavior (or a combination of these). Stigma towards mental health largely takes the shape of societal disapproval of those with mental illness or who desire to discuss mental health in their communities. In this course, we will cover common stigmas related to discussing mental health and approaching mental illness. We will also examine how we may have implicit bias against people with mental illness or even against discussing mental health in general and how we can work to address those biases. This course will also look at various coping strategies used by individuals struggling with mental health and introduce positive practices to discuss mental health.
