34: History of mental illness

Look back in time – what was mental illness?

This is a quote from the Board from chapter 2 – After taking most of this class – can you see why?

“Psychology in the Middle East has always been a taboo word. Mental health has never been spoken about or taken cared of. There is a psychologist named Linda Sakr, who was born in Dubai and achieved her psychology degree at Richmond College in London. After going back to her homeland, she now works as a therapist. Mental health is now becoming more and more accepted every day.”
