About the course

This course is also available as a Distance Learning Option for MSc and PGDip

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.
