This class was tough.
I really enjoyed taking this course as I learned about various psychiatric and intellectual/developmental disorders, which is something I am interested in continuing to study.
The highlights of this course were the guest speakers that spoke to the class about eating disorders and schizophrenia. I learned quite a lot more from the personal experiences of those individuals compared to rote memorization from the textbook.

Advice for students:
I would advise students to read the lecture notes and associated textbook chapters ahead of each lecture, and to always attend the lectures, otherwise you will fall behind!
