Mental health practice: Bonnyrigg

Introduction

Unit image

This unit explores a number of issues relating to mental health practice. It starts by helping you define and understand the difference between mental health and mental illness. It also explores the discrimination that can arise when people experience some form of mental distress. You will look at how professionals working within the community can counter some of the effects of discrimination and stigma and contribute to the well-being of the wider community, as well as those who use their services directly.

This unit is an adapted extract from the Open University course Foundations for social work practice (K113) [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]
