The course provides knowledge and insight needed for those with a special interest in mental health and epidemiology from a global perspective. The focus is particularly on understanding current conceptualizations of mental health and classifications of mental disorders, as well as on understanding the individual and social burden of mental disorders, and to learn about their prevalence and effective prevention programs and treatment strategies. Students will engage critically with the concepts of health and illness in relation to mental health, the notions of mental health promotion and mental illness prevention, as well as the concept of well-being and its relationship to mental health.
