London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

This is a joint programme provided by LSHTM and King’s College London. 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.

Funding opportunities can be found on the LSHTM website.
