Course Content

This core elective module is designed for those involved in mental health services as clinicians, managers, and researchers. The module will link knowledge of condition distribution and risk factors with approaches to problem assessment and will maintain a clinical and service user informed approach, which will assist participants' abilities to contribute to the development and direction of service provision.

You will develop your understanding of the distribution and impact of mental health problems at a global, national and local as well as an individual level. You will also explore the epidemiology of mental health problems in relation to social and environmental factors, as well as examine the relationship between mental and physical health.
