MHR 200 - Behavioral & Community Mental Health Systems

This course will review systems of care provided by the state, as well as those provided by for-profit and not-for-profit entities, to serve the needs of behavioral health consumers.  Essential components of this course include addressing contemporary public and social policy and social services provision within those policies including fundamentals of behavioral health care, child protection, and welfare systems.  In addition, the course examines the history and impact of laws and regulatory standards that dictate these policies and ultimately service provision in behavioral care for children, adults and the elderly.  Both current practices and historical precedent are woven into a model represented in both its completeness and contradictions.
