Course content

This pioneering course is designed to enable you to meet the challenges of vulnerable people with mental health needs, in primary care settings. A unique feature of this course is its focus on application in practice and the fact that it is delivered in partnership by academics and senior practitioners in the field.

The course offers a flexible approach that allows you to study at a pace that suits your work demands and you can choose to study a discrete module or take modules leading to Certificate, Diploma or Masters Awards.

As a result of studying, you will be able to more effectively diagnose/recognise, manage and appropriately refer patients.
