About this Unit
This unit builds on the foundations of mental health and wellbeing established in earlier units. The relationship between stress and vulnerability will be explored within the context of the psychotic disorders schizophrenia and bipolar affective disorder. Students will gain an understanding of how the principles of recovery, introduced in an earlier unit, are applied to caring for people with schizophrenia and bipolar affective disorder. Altered mood, perception, and thinking will be explored and evidence-based assessment tools and biological and psychosocial interventions introduced for facilitating recovery towards mental health and wellbeing.
