The focus of this subject is on exploring and understanding the clinical and social aspects of women’s mental health. Discussion will draw on theoretical perspectives and research findings from sociology, psychology and neuroscience, as well as consumer/service user perspectives. The policy context in Australia and Victoria will be addressed. In 2005 particular emphasis will be placed on women and depression, especially with regard to women’s experiences across the lifespan. A range of treatment approaches and intervention strategies and their usefulness in practice settings will be explored.
