Queen Mary University of London

Course Introduction

This course is suitable for those working with people with mental health problems, or with organisations that provide care, commissioning or policies on mental health care. Most students are working with those affected by poor mental health and are graduates from psychology, medicine, social work, criminal justice or nursing. However, students come from various other fields such as administration, voluntary sector work, media, human resources and industry. Although not a clinically accredited course, most students pursue a clinical training following this programme, though some will enter research careers, policy work, management, or senior clinical practice.
