MSc Cultural and Global Perspectives in Mental Health Care
Stigma, discrimination, social injustice, health inequalities and resource availability all prevent access to appropriate mental health care. Mental health services must reflect the cultural diversity of populations and improve cultural competence and responsiveness.
This MSc is for students who are interested in understanding the impact of socio-cultural factors in mental health, mental illness and mental health care. It suits those who wish to pursue careers in research and clinical practice worldwide as well as those already working in this area.
There are three overall learning objectives for students:
- Learn about assessing mental health problems and understanding their origins and how to help recovery
- A global perspective on mental health and recognition of the importance and challenges in working with culturally-diverse populations
- Learn about research methods and deliver an original research project
