A six week course that describes the most common mental ailments we face daily

Class experience

Students will understand the basics of the five most common mental illnesses including their associated illnesses, the stigma's attached and how common they are in society.
My education and experience has heightened my ability to produce content that is factual without being emotional. The students will learn the truth about many fascinating disorders without feeling judgment and without opinion. 
Students will need to download and/or print out activities provided in the Outschool platform before class.
