Online MSc in Global Mental Health

Program Description

When it comes to investment, mental health trails far behind other fields of healthcare. This opens a world of opportunity for passionate people looking to create sustainable strategies to address the treatment gap and lead the charge for mental wellbeing. Ranked 2nd for Medicine (The Times and Sunday Times University League Table 2018), the University of Glasgow recognises the importance of addressing the global mental health treatment gap and, because of this, their programme matches global mental health goals set by the United Nations.

Together, they are committed to preventing disease, improving health and wellbeing, and reducing inequalities locally, nationally and globally.
