‘No health without mental health’ (Department of Health, 2011), has outlined a strategy for the development of mental health services in the future making an economic as well as a moral case for improving the efficiency and quality of provision. Its focus on priorities such as improving mental wellbeing, health promotion, early intervention, Recovery , evidence-based interventions, improving the patient experience and challenging stigma within a clear framework of outcome measurement provides guidance too for Higher Edication Institutions in developing provision to meet the continuing professional development needs of the health and social care workforce. The Department of Health Sciences has embraced the new agenda and is committed to offering a range of mental health courses and educational inputs to assist the development of practitioner skills and service improvement.
Our mental health research teams are involved in ongoing evaluation research into the effectiveness of mental health-related therapeutic interventions such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Parent Education Programmes. Such work provides a foundation that underpins some of our evidence-based skills training. For example, our Foundations of CBT module builds on practitioners’ existing general therapeutic skills and enables the importance of measurement and evaluation to be incorporated within an approach which still recognises the value of an active and collaborative therapeutic relationship. In a similar way, our Child and Adolescent Mental Health programme helps provide practitioners with the specialised knowledge and skills to enable them to contribute to the provision of multi-disciplinary and multi-agency mental healthcare for children and adolescents of all ages. The Psycho-Social Interventions programme also provides a clear framework for skills and knowledge development in the field of care of those people experiencing longer term mental illness.
Our wide range of courses, which includes study days, modules, degree programmes and bespoke projects to meet particular service need.
