  • <p>This course takes you on a journey of discovery where you are invited to challenge ideas, both new and old, in relation to mental health. It is made up of a series of three extracts. The first extract, &#x2018;Boundaries of explanation’, sets out the theme of boundaries: boundaries within and between groups; within and between explanatory frameworks; and within and between experiences of mental health and distress. The second extract, &#x2018;Whose risk is it anyway?’, considers a critical account of the increasing focus on risk (particularly risk to others) in policies and professional practice since the 1980s. The third extract, &#x2018;The business of madness’, looks at two controversial areas of mental health: the growth of mental health as a business, driven in part by market forces, and the profit motive.</p><p>This OpenLearn course provides a sample of Level 2 study in <span class="oucontent-linkwithtip"><a class="oucontent-hyperlink" href="http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/find/health-and-social-care?LKCAMPAIGN=ebook_&amp;MEDIA=ou">Health and Social Care</a></span>.</p>
