Instructor: Program Director - Beth Richan
While people with disabilities continue to experience challenges to their full and equal community participation, people with disabilities in the context of mental illnesses are subject to particularly profound levels of social exclusion at a global level. This course will examine current disability discourse as it relates to mental illnesses and examine processes by which exclusion of this population occurs globally. Issues of exclusion will be evaluated using an international focus. Theoretical perspectives will be grounded in real life examples.
