Overview

Mental health is becoming increasingly more challenging and multidisciplinary in practice so it’s essential to be able to deal with complex situations you may face as a healthcare professional with confidence.

The Clinical Psychiatry (Online Delivery) offered by University of South Wales will ensure you’re up to date with new classifications, treatments and assessments that integrate psychological and social sciences, and develop your understanding of how the Mental Health Act and the Capacity Acts influence delivery of services. 

You will also learn plus how the field links to acute medicine, surgery, perinatal services, children’s services and primary care.

Career

There is high prevalence of mental health symptoms that present in general practice. Mental illness accounts for a large burden of disease with approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK likely to experience a mental health problem each year. Therefore, in clinical practice it is highly likely that the first presentation and follow up of those suffering from mental health conditions will be assessed and managed in general practice, or by non-psychiatrists in primary or secondary care.

Therefore, healthcare professionals on the front line, including primary care and specialist units, need to be equipped with the skills and specialist knowledge to deal with mental health patients confidently and effectively. This course will provide you with that knowledge.
