Comments about Master Mental Health & Wellbeing - At the institution - London - Greater London

  • Objectives
    This programme will develop the skills, knowledge and insight of those who support people with problems related to mental health. The focus is particularly on promoting health and inclusion, and on social factors affecting wellbeing. Students will engage critically with concepts of health and illness in relation to mental health, and examine both mental health promotion and mental illness prevention, as well as the concept of wellbeing. For this students will engage with the service user perspective, the recovery model and the importance of social participation and community development in mental health. They will understand and analyse the epidemiological evidence base, and explore theory, methods, ethics, politics and economic considerations. Their analysis of the evidence to support specific types of intervention to enhance wellbeing and insight into what public mental health strategies may help, will be developed in parallel with their insights, empathy and skills in communication through an introduction to brief therapies. These skills and insights will be applied to the students own working context.
