PgDip Mental Health; PgCert Mental Health
The aim of the Mental Health masters programme is to enable participants to develop knowledge, expert practice and leadership roles in mental health to improve the outcomes and experiences of mental health service users.
This programme is aimed at experienced practitioners in any setting, including primary care, specialist mental health services, NHS Trusts, social services, independent, voluntary or other agencies. Users of the mental health services with appropriate academic backgrounds who may be involved in service development, user-led service provision, voluntary agencies or user groups are also especially welcomed as students.
A short ‘Basic Competence in CBT’ course may also be taken within this programme. A distinct course has been developed within the programme to prepare ‘Low Intensity Psychological Therapies Workers’ as part of the national agenda to ‘Improve Access to Psychological Therapies’ (IAPT).
