NOTE: Given the insecurity about the development of covid-19 and its influence on on-campus (offline) activities, all –then applicable- guidelines from the Dutch government will be followed. On 1 May, we will decide whether this course can run on-campus or if it will be given online.
How young is too young to diagnose a child with bipolar disorder? What is the solution to alcohol addiction in South Korea? What is normal – and does “normal” even exist? To explore such questions, this course invites you “down the rabbit hole” of mental health as a global issue. Offering the broadest possible perspective on the topic, we discuss the most prevalent and impactful disorders in different regions and so reveal the complexity of the psychiatric aspects of public health worldwide.
