Course summary

When it comes to investment, mental health trails far behind other fields of healthcare. This opens a world of opportunity for passionate people to create sustainable strategies to address the treatment gap and lead the charge for mental wellbeing.

For career professionals or recent graduates hoping to lead international mental health services, our online Global Mental Health programme may be just the programme for you. Whether you’re looking for a position in government, an international agency or an NGO, this mental health MSc will empower you to forge your own mental health policies, strategies and services.

With a focus on the impact of social and cultural factors on awareness and treatment, this mental health masters matches global mental health goals set by the United Nations and those identified in ‘Grand Challenges in Global Mental Health’ published in the world-leading science journal Nature (2011). We’re committed to preventing disease, improving health and wellbeing, and reducing inequalities locally, nationally and globally.

Studying this distance learning programme will expose you to leading research, cutting-edge topics and first-hand insights, via international experts, speakers with lived experience of mental illness and interdisciplinary lecturers from our esteemed Institute of Health & Wellbeing. Suicide, psychosis and neurological conditions are just a sample of the topics explored. Gain the tools required to improve access to mental health services from anywhere in the world.

We’ll keep you engaged and inspired to develop strong research of your own.

Just because it’s online doesn’t mean you’ll miss out on the personal touch. Through discussion and debate with a diverse, global community of students, you’ll be just as immersed in the content as if you were studying in a real classroom.
