Across the globe, there’s a huge gap between the need for mental health treatment and the resource to provide it. Whether you want to create mental health programmes, guide policy, or conduct research, this course is the ideal way to work towards solving this major problem.
Our jointly run course with the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) ensures you will have access to the latest research innovation and facilities of both institutions. The two organisations are leading the field in mental health and public health research so you’ll be taught by researchers at the cutting-edge of knowledge.
- Learn from the experts at King’s Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) and the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
- Choose from a wide range of optional modules and develop your own research interests with our summer project
- Get the latest insight directly from researchers at the Global Mental Health Centre
- Take your career to the next level – whether you’re a clinician, researcher, development worker, or work in policy and planning
- Develop the skills you need to create effective policies, systems, services and clinical interventions
All our teaching staff are active researchers so you’ll have access to the latest knowledge in the subject. Many also come from a clinical background, so their experience helps inform your classes.
Teaching and support is split between King’s and LSHTM. This means you’ll get one seamless course with access to two universities worth of expertise behind it.
