Mental Health Disorders in Adulthood

SW606, Section 001

This interprofessional course is for student learners in the areas of social work, nursing, pharmacy, and dentistry. This course will present the state-of-the-art knowledge and research of mental disorders of adults and the elderly, as well as factors that promote mental health, and prevent mental disorders and substance related problems in adults and the elderly. Using a clinical case discussion format this class will highlight mental health diagnoses, comorbidity, and collaboration across health professions. Social determinants of health/mental health will be used as an organizing framework for discussing the impact of factors associated with health and mental health across diverse cultures, groups and populations. Classification systems of adult mental functioning and mental disorders will be presented, such as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-Fifth Edition (DSM-5) and International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9/10). Students will be taught to critically understand both the strengths and limitations of these classification systems and how to use these systems in practice. Interprofessional education competencies related to teamwork and collaboration, values and ethics, and communication will be addressed.
