Course Description

"Focuses on the role of communication and rhetoric in shaping distinctions and relations between 'mental health' and 'public policy.' Students focus predominantly on how rhetoric around mental health issues, in a variety of media settings (print, online, social), influence public perception of mental health issues and how that perception can lead to public policy changes. Students look at historical movements as well as current issues like the opioid epidemic approaches to public safety and mental health advocacy campaigns. Students engage in researching and creating an advocacy campaign of their own."
