Always Do the Reading
Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I found the subject material to be fascinating. This class covers the 19 areas of mental health disorders in a way that make sense. Problems are always the most interesting thing to study and this class was all about human problems and the variety or problems a human can have at the same time. Dr. Regan is extremely intelligent and was the director at the Mid-Hudson Mental Hospital and has real life experiences and stories to tie to what we are learning so that we understand more about the impact that these disorders have on someone's life.
I learned that people break in different ways and that sometimes there is nothing you can do to stop them from breaking. There are too many factors against them either biologically or socially to prevent them from breaking. However these disorders do not make up the whole person and a person does not start and end with their disorder. There is so much stigma around getting help and speaking out but the moment a person can get the help they really need their lives can improve tenfold. Not all care is the same and even people with the same disorder need different levels and types of treatment which makes helping people so difficult but if someone can get the help they need they are better for it.

Advice for students:
Read the textbook. The tests are based entirely on the material there and while a lot of the information is covered in class there are specifics that are gained from the textbook which is not talked about in class.
