Course summary

About the course

This three year, part-time, fully online programme will provide you with the knowledge and skills to make a difference to the recovery and social inclusion of people experiencing mental health distress. Each module uses current research, activities and group discussions to help you understand and engage with issues at the heart of the challenges facing people with lived experience of mental ill health and those helping them. Through exploring current recovery research with fellow students and tutors, you will develop your understanding and skills of mental health recovery and social inclusion in relation to theory and practice, research methods, legislation, leadership and how change can be effected through innovative practice. As a student you will examine international issues, what co-production really means in terms of collaboration and participation, the importance of peer support work, advocacy and leadership in the experience of mental health and in services.

Why choose this course?

Recovery is an innovative and empowering approach to working with and alongside people experiencing mental distress. It is an approach that has gained great credence with service users, agencies and staff in recent years and this challenging course offers opportunities to those with an interest in making a difference to the future of mental health services. This learning community (which is equally balanced between those with lived experience and with clinical 'learned' backgrounds) means that we can create unique opportunities to meaningfully explore authentic experiences. Students go on to use this understanding to embed new and innovative ways of working in practice and in research. We offer flexible, recovery values based learning and support to ensure a smooth learning journey for all students. This course is ideal for professionals from all mental health disciplines, people with lived experience of mental distress, carers, service managers, policy makers and those who aspire to be leaders in their areas of expertise in their country.
