Advanced Practice Interventions for Mental Health


Course Description

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

PSI for Psychosis (PSIp) pathway :

There is now a robust evidence base indicating that structured Psychosocial Interventions (PSI), incorporating Cognitive Behavioural and Family-based approaches, can be extremely effective and beneficial for people with psychosis. This evidence forms the basis of national policy guidelines (NICE, 2014) recommending that such interventions should be offered as standard to all people experiencing a psychotic illness.

The University of Manchester has one of the longest track records in the world for the provision of innovative, high quality education and training in PSI for health and social care practitioners working with people experiencing psychosis and their carers. Many graduates of the programme have taken up senior positions at National and Regional level leading strategic developments and making significant contributions to research in this area of practice.

The programme involves attendance at the University for one day per week during term-time and the equivalent of one day per week in practice to achieve the practical-skills outcomes associated with some course units in the programme. Students are required to identify a suitable practice supervisor/mentor to oversee the clinical and/or practice work required for the programme and specific pathways.
