Course description - This course will examine the topic of mental health and illness from a sociological perspective. Mental illness directly or indirectly affects all Canadians at some point in life. While mental health and illness is more typically treated as an intrapersonal or psychological phenomenon thought to be rooted in biological or genetic factors, sociological approaches challenge this notion by positing that mental health is profoundly shaped by social conditions. Topics and theories covered will include the social construction of mental illness, the medicalization and institutionalization of deviance, labelling and stigma, and the social determinants of mental health. Students who are interested should send a statement of intent including year of study, major, and reasons f and ~
