SWK 4412H – The Context of Mental Health and Health Practice - Required

This course examines Canadian mental health and health policy and services with a particular emphasis on Ontario. It also reviews cross-national comparisons to identify similarities and differences in the development of mental health and health policy and services. The course is based on the assumption that social workers in mental health and health settings should be able to participate in the assessment and modification of conditions that affect mental health and health by intervening with individuals and families, and assisting in the development of relevant and effective programs and service systems for mental and physical illness.
