About

One in four people will experience a mental health problem during their lifetime. Affecting people from all walks of life, its impact is felt on individuals but also their families and the wider community. The Mental Health programme at Anglia Ruskin University will increase your knowledge and understanding of mental health care.

Overview

Whatever your background is, the Mental Health programme at Anglia Ruskin University will meet your personal, professional and educational needs through engaging with innovation, research and leadership.

Each module starts with a two day face-to-face workshop to explain the module and expectations, it's also a time to build relationships with peers and staff. Part time students will do two days of workshops and one module per trimester. Full time students will do four, one day workshops and two modules per trimester. The workshops will be in Chelmsford but if numbers are sufficient they can be put on at our Cambridge campus.

The rest of the learning is distance learning through the virtual learning environment (VLE). This has been built as a very innovative learning environment which addresses all learning styles. Each module takes a virtual international journey - the first is the Siberian express travelling from Moscow to China. Students can collect different types of learning materials at each station and the complete tasks, activities and exercises to help develop their learning on each subject area. Students also have access to a blog and a discussion board to post answers and questions with an alert on each one so the distance learning module tutor managing the VLE will then be alerted when the students have posted. There's also a goods van with study skills material in it.

Careers

There’s no doubt that our course will strengthen your employment opportunities in health and social care. Having been taught to think both critically and analytically, you’ll graduate with the skills and knowledge needed for your future career in relevant industries, including public and private health and social care services.

You’ll develop skills that employers value together with a strong understanding of mental health issues, enhancing your employability and preparing you for middle or senior-ranking posts, in the UK and internationally.
