Program Overview: 


The broad goal of the course is to explore and contrast the mental health systems of the United States and the United Kingdom.  In both the U.S. and the U.K. students will engage in classroom discussions of assigned readings; visit mental health facilities: forensic psychiatric center, mental health providers, and mental health consumers, with a field trip to Ann Arbor, Wales, and Dublin.
