ANTC24H3 Culture, Mental Illness, and Psychiatry

Does schizophrenia exist all over the world?  Does depression look different in China than it does in Canada?  By examining how local understandings of mental illness come into contact with Western psychiatric models, this course considers the role of culture in the experience, expression, definition, and treatment of mental illness and questions the universality of Western psychiatric categories.
