Introduction

This free course, Making sense of mental health problems, explores some of the key ways of naming and making sense of mental health problems, such as psychiatric diagnosis, psychological formulation and social need assessments. There are both theoretical and practical concerns about categorising mental health problems and you will explore these in relation to mental health practice.
