This class was tough.
I absolutely loved learning about the different mental illnesses that one could have. I currently work as a Psychiatric Nursing Assistant and I believe it helped to be more understanding with my patients as they come in for specialized treatment.
I learned about Schizophrenia and how it is developed and when you will first start showing symptoms for it. I learned more about Bi polar disorder and how that works with manic episodes and the lack of sleep one might deal with due to that.

Advice for students:
I read the chapters and took notes on what I thought could be brought up in the quizzes we took weekly. I would go back and look up information for my written assignments which I believed helped me pass my quizzes with really good grades.
