Course Summary

About this course

Develop your theoretical knowledge of mental health and study alongside graduates from a range of related backgrounds in a dynamic and creative environment.

  • Develop your knowledge of mental health
  • Access a diverse and inclusive learning experience
  • Work with fellow students on research projects that support change in and around the mental health milieu

The programme ethos is to create an environment where you will be exposed to a diverse and inclusive learning experience, enabling you to work collaboratively in developing research projects with the potential to support change in and around the mental health milieu.

The systemic agenda in the public and private sectors focus on crossing boundaries and enabling whole systems change. There are very few programmes nationally where the focus is on integration of learners from multiple sectors of practice and society in considering the sociocultural aspects of mental health illness. This Masters programme aims to facilitate a wide-ranging approach to change in mental health.

The combination of core, optional and research modules creates an environment in which you are supported to develop your thinking and knowledge of mental health through education and research. The programme team have a depth and breadth of subject specific academic knowledge designed to ensure you are supported in developing both personally and professionally.

LJMU graduates tell us that during their time here they learned from experts in their field, enjoyed great one-to-one support and were challenged. They made friends with people from all over the world, tried new sports and got free access to some of the finest cultural events in the UK. Although we love to hear that our graduates had an incredible time, we know that your experience is going to be unique and shaped entirely by you, your needs and your ambitions.
