TOP REVIEWS FROM THE SOCIAL CONTEXT OF MENTAL HEALTH AND ILLNESS
It was so structured and meaningfully engaging. Loved every part of it . Thank you Charmaine for bringing this course to coursera. Lots of best wishes to you.
This is a very interesting and eye opening course. Professor Williams explained in such a way that students like me with zero knowledge could understand and be interested. Highly recommended.
Charmaine Williams is a natural communicator and the course material is varied and detailed, however, I would prefer less video and more texts material.
Very nice. A good opportunity to learn about mental health and illness and discover how these two concepts are seen in others places around the world.
