This course provides you with the skills to asses and treat patients with brief, evidence-based psychological approaches for the treatment of mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. It is part of the Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme which trains Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners (PWPs) for NHS employment.

The Department of Health's IAPT programme is an innovative approach to address common mental health problems. Through this course you are trained as a practitioner to help those who experience depression and anxiety through use of evidence-based psychological therapies.

Low intensity treatments employ brief, cognitive behavioural therapy approaches through use of vehicles such as guided self-help, forming part of the stepped care system recommended for depression and anxiety disorders. After meeting and assessing a patient, the practitioner supports a therapeutic intervention to help patients with their problems and/or engage with other services that will facilitate them in their recovery.

Please note: This course is a pathway within the MSc 'Advanced Practice Interventions for Mental Health' (APIMH). The information here relates to the Primary Mental Health Care pathway within the MSc APIMH, but is listed under the pathway specific title. Other pathways are available in PSI for Psychosis (COPE) and Dementia Care.

The programme and pathways have been designed to respond and contribute to the modernisation of mental health care delivery and service design.

Postgraduate study in Primary Mental Health Care (PMHC) commenced at The University of Manchester in 2004, building on the well-established national and international reputation of the university for innovative research, service development and training in this field of practice. Common mental health problems, including anxiety and depression, account for one-third of all consultations in Primary Care in the UK and the impact of these on individuals, families, communities and health care resources is recognised at a global level.

A key strategy to address current and future challenges of this immense area of need is to equip those working in Primary Care, including those in both existing and new roles, with relevant knowledge and skills to enhance access to and effectiveness of services and care delivery through evidence-based, innovative approaches. The programme is directly relevant to clinical practice, using a bio-psychosocial framework to enable students to develop knowledge and skills in evidence-based interventions, including cognitive-behavioural approaches, collaborative case management and community engagement.

This part-time, multi-disciplinary, practice-focused educational programme aims to equip students with the advanced knowledge and skills necessary to offer high quality, evidence based interventions and contribute to service developments which promote socially inclusive mental health care for individuals, families and communities.

The first year of the pathway (PGCert) meets the national competencies for IAPT Psychological Well-being Practitioners (PWPs) and is a mandatory requirement, funded through an NHS contract, for newly appointed PWPs.

Aims

The aim of the programme and pathway is to enhance access to, and the effectiveness of, mental health and social care services that are evidence-based, multidisciplinary and focused on the needs of patients/service users and their carers.

The programme will equip students with advanced knowledge and skills necessary to enhance their own practice (PGCert), the practice of others and contribute to innovations and developments in mental health care and service delivery (PGDip/MSc).

Career opportunities

This course is for:
-Existing practitioners across the North-West region employed in the NHS as well as other statutory/voluntary services contributing to the work of the NHS
-Trainee Psychological Well-being Practitioners (as part of the 'Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies' (IAPT) initiative) who are employed in the NHS in Greater Manchester as well as other statutory/voluntary services who have been commissioned to provide an IAPT Primary Mental Health Care Service
-The first year of the pathway (PGCert) is automatically undertaken as part of these roles

PWPs who have already completed the PGCert in Primary Mental Health Care since 2004 and have their employers' support, may enter the pathway at Year 2.
