Overview Often the non-professional communities, as well as family members of persons with mental illness, do not understand the distinctions between the various categories of mental illness. Many people, not in the Clinical Mental Health profession, view schizophrenia, dissociative identity, and bipolar disorder as similar diseases. In fact, you may have not fully understood those distinctions until entering this course. Many people shun those with the disorders listed as if the disorder were contagious. As a Clinical Mental Health Counselor, you are in a unique position to assess and treat clients as well as to educate the client, the family, and the community about the stigma of mental illness. Assignment 3 will help you to clarify your understanding of mental illness, treatment, and stigma. You should also listen to the lecture, review supplemental materials, and use the rubrics as guides to help you complete the assignment. This assignment will count toward your final grade and is due by Day 7. It is worth 75 points.
