Vision of The Department of Community Mental Health
Mental health is shaped by a combination of social, biological and cultural factors. The objective of the Department of Community Mental Health is to promote mental health in individuals and society. Faculty from the department and many of the students are involved in research and practice examining mental health issues, including resilience promotion, prevention and reduction of psychopathology, coping with trauma, and psychiatric rehabilitation and recovery from serious mental illness. Many of these efforts are in collaboration with mental health consumers along with health, social, national and non-governmental authorities and organizations. These efforts unite theory, application, and training of mental health professionals.
