This core elective module is designed for those involved in mental health services as practitioners, managers, and researchers. The module will link knowledge of prevalence and risk factors for mental illness, stigma and service use, with approaches to mental health assessment. The module will maintain a clinical and service user informed approach, which will help students contribute to the development and direction of service provision.
You will develop your understanding of the prevalence and impact of mental health needs at a global, national and local as well as an individual level. You will also explore the epidemiology of mental health needs in relation to social and environmental factors, as well as examining the relationship between mental and physical health.
