Question by Daniel: Do you think educating the public about mental health issues would be a good thing to do?
I am studying community health in college, with a minor in health education. I am thinking about being a mental health advocate and a lobbyist someday. I also plan on educating the general public about many mental health issues, especially depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Do you think this is a good thing to do, in general? What good would come out of it?

Thanks a lot for your answers!

Question by David: What is illegal about religion and public schools?
Is it just that teachers are not allowed to promote religion (indicating prejudices?) or what? Since groups are allowed to promote religion in public schools, isn’t this illegal?

Best answer:

Answer by favteacher
If a techer promotes religion, this is a violation of the prohibition against establishment of religion. A teacher is not a neutral person but a very powerful person, and students really have no way to reject his teaching.

Answer by lefse2991
I’ve been trying to figure out more information on this subject as well. From what I’ve found I know that International public health deals with the general health and prevention/treatment of general populations mainly in underdeveloped countries. Whereas clinical health professionals deal with diagnosing and treating an individual who is sick (i.e. a doctor), international public health professionals work to determine how to advance the health of entire populations and prevent disease/epidemics. It’s a pretty broad discipline. You can work as an epidemiologist overseas, a health educator, a health policy advisor, a nutritionist or you could even go into the legal side of things and become a lawyer specializing in international health issues. There are lots and lots of other things you can do with an international public health degree.

For most positions you need a Masters degree such as a Masters of Public Health (MPH) or a Masters of Science in Public Health (MSPH). You can also get a Doctorate of Public Health (DrPH) or a PhD in Public Health (for a more research oriented career). I would recommend the below website for more in depth information on all aspects of public health.
