Course summary

This Masters degree is designed to produce graduates who can take charge of mental health service provision at a global level by helping them develop the knowledge to integrate initiatives into the wider aims of international development, and address the global inequities in the provision of mental health services. By developing the capacity to think critically about the potential risks of globalising notions of mental illness you will gain the skills to develop and implement policies aimed at reducing the burden of mental health difficulties worldwide.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • The Global Mental Health MSc can offer two student placements at the Glasgow Psychological Trauma Service. We offer an internal selection process whereby students are invited to submit a one page document detailing: What they would hope to gain from a placement with the service; Why they are a suitable candidate for the placement.
  • These two parts can each be scored out of 10 by members of the programme team. The top two scoring submissions are then viewed and approved by the clinician at the Glasgow Psychological Trauma Service and if deemed appropriate these two applicants are offered the placement opportunities. The placement is then subject to relevant disclosure checks.
  • The learning outcomes (ILOs) for the programme are based on the Grand Challenges in Global Mental Health that were identified in a 2011 issue of Nature.
  • The MSc Global Mental Health programme at the University of Glasgow places specific emphasis on the important role that social and cultural factors play in how mental health difficulties can be understood and treated across the globe.
  • Contributors to the MSc Global Mental Health teaching come from a diverse range of disciplines including: clinical psychology, social work, anthropology, sociology, law and psychiatry. Teaching also includes contribution from those with a lived experience of mental health difficulties.

Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip exit awards during this course.
