Why isn’t there a class that delves more in depth into mental health? Sure we learn about physical health, and the bodily functions we see, but why not learn about the origin of mental health? Why people have chemical imbalances in their brains; why people’s genes have a slight impact on their mental situation. If there is a class that talks about the scars that people don’t see, but probably the deepest ones (mental health) please let me know the course.
