How to Write Characters with Mental Health Disorders

Andy Garcia Ruiz

Class Description

In this class, we'll explore the 5 main categories of mental health conditions plus the 3 cluster personality disorders. Authors will learn how to accurately research their character's condition(s), and avoid caricatures/stereotypes. We will complete an in-class vignette to show how to apply a condition to a character and how it can help inform the writing.
