Global Mental Health is a joint programme provided by the School and King’s College London Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience. This course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to initiate, develop and oversee mental health programmes in low-resource settings, and to conduct and critically evaluate research on global mental health. These skills will equip students to make valuable contributions in research, public health, policy and practice.
Graduates 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 organisations.
Applications for this course are processed by King's College London, not by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
