Course Description

Mental illness is a major cause of morbidity as well as some mortality, particularly amongst citizens at risk in South Africa. Generally, mental health promotion and the provision of services (for mental illness) have been neglected in the past. Common manifestations are interpersonal violence, gender and age specific forms of violence, trauma, neurosis of living under continual stress, post traumatic stress reactions and disorders, substance abuse, suicide and adjustment related reactions and disturbances in children and the elderly”.
