Mental Health: Cultural and Global Perspectives in Mental Health Care

Course content

One year full-time, two years part-time.
Distance-learning option available

There is a growing recognition that mental health, mental illness and treatment/care are situated within socio-cultural contexts. Cultural factors such as belief systems, values, norms, practices and traditions impact on the risk and resilience towards developing mental health problems and suicidal behaviours. Furthermore, current phenomena such as globalisation and large scale displacements of populations create new strengths and vulnerabilities in mental health.

Stigma, discrimination, social injustice, health inequalities and resource availability all prevent access to appropriate mental health care. Mental health services must reflect the cultural diversity of populations and improve cultural competence and responsiveness.
This MSc is for students who are interested in understanding the impact of socio-cultural factors on mental health, mental illness and mental health care and wish to pursue careers in mental health research and practice in various settings worldwide and in multicultural societies.

Core modules:

• Advanced Skills in Mental Health

We offer the option of two pathways:
• Psychological Therapies, or Cultural & Global Perspectives in Mental Health Care
• Research Methods and Evidence-based Practice
