Mental Health, Youth and Society
With unprecedented levels of mental distress and addiction reported globally, recent events exposed fissures within our social and health care systems. Behavioral health, focused on the promotion of mental health, resilience, and well-being, can have wide ranging impacts individually, socially, and economically. This course examines public health approaches including health promotion, prevention, and intervention, specific to mental health and addictive behaviors. Through interactive, multi-modal, and problem-based learning, we interrogate issues pertinent to our recovery from this global health crisis.
