Summer '22 Course Spotlight: Society and Mental Health

February 28, 2022

MSU Sociology is highlighting its Summer 2022 Courses that are open for all undergraduates. This week, we focus on SOC 350: Society and Mental Health with Dr. Jodi Yelinek, who explains the course:
"What is mental illness? Is mental illness "real" or is it something created by society? Who gets to decide? How has that changed over time? Why is stigma attached to mental illness? Is there less stigma than there used to be? Is there more mental illness now than in the past, or just more awareness? Are we overmedicating America? Do people ever recover from mental illness? We discuss answers to these questions and much more in this course! There are no tests or quizzes but intensive reading."
