Faculty Event Explores Incorporating Books on Mental Illness into Courses

An interactive event on Friday, Sept. 20, from noon to 1 p.m., at the University Store on Fifth will explore interesting and practical ways faculty can integrate discussion of mental illness into coursework. 
Join Christina Newhill, professor in the School of Social Work, and Linda Tashbook, adjunct professor of law and foreign, international and comparative law librarian at Pitt Law, for the event.
Between them, Newhill and Tashbook have authored or edited books that explain what clients and providers need to know about mental illness and how family members can help loved ones fight legal hurdles that people with mental illnesses might encounter. The session will allow time for audience questions and discussion.
