This course aims to provide people with the knowledge and skills to initiate, develop and oversee mental health policies and/or programmes in low-resource settings, and to conduct and critically evaluate research on global mental health. These skills and knowledge will make it possible for students to make valuable contributions in the domains of research, public health, policy and practice as they relate to the discipline of global mental health.

We anticipate that graduates will enter careers in national mental health policy and planning, epidemiological and mental health services research, and advisory and advocacy roles in governments, international agencies, and non-governmental organizations.

By the end of the course, students will able to:

  • demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the mental health challenges facing low resource settings;
  • devise locally appropriate and feasible strategies to reduce the burden of mental disorders;
  • develop research protocols to investigate key issues in global mental health including epidemiological, intervention- and policy-related questions, and
  • apply research skills to monitor and evaluate mental health programmes
