Mental illnesses and disorders affect around 20% of people. Most of us know someone personally, or vicariously, who has a mental health problem. Although mental health problems were once considered taboo most modern societies accept mental illness as a condition which can affect anyone. Our understanding of mental illnesses has increased drastically over the past 150 years and we now have more ways of helping people to cope with their symptoms or overcome them entirely.
This course is a must for anyone with an interest in mental health -
This course will help the student to develop awareness of a range of common psychological disorders - their aetiology, symptoms, prognosis, and possible treatment options. Whilst the course largely mirrors classifications systems used in the DSM and ICD, the student is also encouraged to consider issues such as how do we define normality and abnormality, and when is an individual's behaviour within the bounds of what is regarded as "normal" in society - and when is it "abnormal".
It will be of benefit to anyone who is interested in the workings of the human mind - counsellors, teachers, social workers, youth workers, support workers, carers, or even those who just want to learn more about themselves. Many of us experience symptoms of different mental health conditions at different times in our lives but the symptoms are not severe enough or do not last long enough to warrant a diagnosis.
There are 11 lessons in this course:
Each lesson culminates in an assignment which is submitted to the school, marked by the school's tutors and returned to you with any relevant suggestions, comments, and if necessary, extra reading.

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the education warrants the overall expense in the long run.
College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings
The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s, education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do. While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades, those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
