SCS285 Health and Mental Health in Australia

Breadcrumbs

In Australia, individuals are expected to accept that scientific and medical solutions can prevent and cure illness and disease, however, health is not an objective state, but dependent on historical, cultural, political, social and economic contexts. These interrelationships are explored using anti-oppressive theories that privilege social models of health. The course explores the social constructions of health and the role legislation plays across a range of health issues. The course focuses on mental health and the nature of professional practice in Australian public health services.
