MSc/PgD/PgC Practitioner with a Special Interest in Mental Health

Course Description

This award pathway has been developed following consultation with PRIMHE, the DH, voluntary organisations and the Royal College of GP's.

The award therefore offers a new venture for PG delivery of study and is primarily focussed towards practitioners working in a primary and secondary mental health arena; on either a sessional,clinical, managerial basis from a leadership and/or educational basis.

This award is focussed upon an individual's personal and professional development, within a specialised mental health perspective, therby offering an exciting opportunity to review, reconsider and re-establish a range of diagnostic skills and assessment strategies and promote an understanding for brain-mind illnesses, emotional health, mental health wellbeing and treatment of mental illness.

The individualistic and professional approach to skill examination therefore both supports and underpins a range of prescribed competencies, deemed essential to future practice by the department of Health for future practice of GP's with a Special Interest in Mental Health.

Examples of core modules:
Ethics and mental health legislation
Common mental disorders: Recognition, assessment and management
Practitioner with a specialist interest in mental health: Facts, beliefs and values
Neurolinguistic programming
