Living With Mental Illness

Social Concerns Seminar
CSC 33991

In the spirit of Notre Dame du Lac, the overall goal of this seminar is to educate both the heart and mind about what it means to live with chronic mental illness. Students will be introduced to and hear perspectives from health care providers, families, and those living with serious mental illness. There will be a strong focus on the Clubhouse model of recovery. Clubhouse International is an organization that promotes the recovery of adults living with mental illness by providing them with a welcoming community, meaningful work, and supported employment. The essence of this seminar is to develop each student’s understanding of the complexities of what it means to live with a serious mental illness, expose them to existing models that support these individuals and form a foundation moving forward that begs the question: Where do we go from here?  By the end of the course, students will be equipped to begin to answer this question in their own communities and with their own talents.
