This is a joint programme offered by the School and King’s College London Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience. It will provide you with the knowledge and skills to initiate, develop and oversee mental health programmes in low-resource settings, and to conduct and critically evaluate research on global mental health.
By the end of the programme you will be able to:
- demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the mental health challenges facing low-resource settings
- devise locally appropriate and feasible strategies to reduce the burden of mental disorders
- develop research protocols to investigate key issues in global mental health including epidemiological, intervention- and policy-related questions
- apply research skills to monitor and evaluate mental health programmes
The skills you develop during the programme will enable you to make valuable contributions in research, public health, policy and practice. Graduates enter careers in national mental health policy and planning, epidemiological and mental health services research, and advisory and advocacy roles in governments, international agencies and NGOs.
