Course summary

When it comes to investment, mental health trails far behind other fields of health care. This online Global Mental Health Masters emphasises the important role that social and cultural factors play in how mental health difficulties can be understood and treated across the globe. It is designed to produce graduates who can take charge of mental health service provision at a global level. This programme opens a world of opportunity for passionate people to create sustainable strategies, address the treatment gap and actively lead positive change in the treatment of mental health issues.
