Masters degrees in Psychology of Mental Health involve advanced study of the methods for determining and promoting psychological well-being.
Related subjects include Clinical Mental Health Sciences and Forensic Mental Health. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Clinical Practice, Medicine or Psychology.
The term ‘mental health’ is often associated with the idea of mental ill health. However, mental health psychologists are concerned with how to maintain healthy psychological functions and human behaviours. Courses in this field will teach you how to examine and determine healthy traits, using methods such as psychoanalysis and psychometric testing.
The primary purpose of this analysis is to determine how well individuals are able to enjoy or approach life, and how they deal with different situations. Different methodologies explore the ways that life activities and habits can be balanced to achieve psychological resilience.
You’ll be able to apply your expertise in a broad range of clinical, social, healthcare and forensic contexts. You may deal directly with patients in hospital, their homes or other care facilities. Alternatively, you could work in community contexts, providing support services to individuals and families.
