Course summary

The interdisciplinary Mental Health MSc focuses on Youth Mental Health, integrating the latest research and policy into teaching and practice. Our MSc in Mental Health, with a strong focus on Youth Mental Health, is a unique qualification, bringing together a number of disciplines ranging from psychology, sociology and social policy to medicine, philosophy and education. Accreditation is offered and we are welcoming applications for MSc, PGCert and PGDip in Mental Health.

Why Study this Course?

This is the only interdisciplinary taught MSc in Mental Health in the UK, offering you a unique opportunity to study alongside other students drawn from a range of professional educational backgrounds.

This MSc offers the unique opportunity to learn and research alongside experts drawn from mental health practice (e.g. social policy), academic (e.g. neuroscience, sociology) and lived experience expertise such as our Youth Advisory Group.

Students enrolled on the MSc will benefit from a long and established history in world-leading interdisciplinary mental health research, with experts working directly with NHS partners to understand the causes of poor mental health and develop effective treatments and services.

Graduates from this course will make excellent candidates for research-related employment in both private and public sector organisations as the MSc in Mental Health develops key skills that are highly attractive to employers, including analytical and statistical skills, as well as presentation and report writing skills. This MSc is also excellent preparation for a PhD or other advanced degree positions.

The MSc in Mental Health will help address a number of key priority areas:

  • The rising public awareness of mental health, and the increasing demand on public services to respond to public demand and mental illness.
  • The call to skill up the national and international workforce in relation to children and young people’s mental health.
  • The increasing awareness of employers and their responsibilities in relation to Workplace Wellbeing and promoting Workplace Mental Health.
  • The increased significance that the Mental Health research agenda has received in the UK and internationally, and the need to train the next generation of Mental Health researchers and to retain clinical staff in the NHS workforce.
  • This MSc is designed to recruit from and feed into four different employment pathways (see diagram below), including a public sector leadership and management pathway, a clinical pathway, an industry pathway, and an academic pathway.
