Key Features

Diploma MSc  is a collaborative partner of the University of South Wales and on successful completion of this course, you will receive a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Psychiatry (Online).

Mental health is becoming increasingly challenging, with approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK likely to experience a mental health problem every year. These presentations can be on a wide spectrum, including change in behaviour, substance misuse, mood disorder, psychosis, dementia and more.

Due to the prevalence of mental health symptoms, it is highly likely that the first presentation and follow up of those suffering from these conditions will be assessed and managed in general practice or by non-psychiatrists in primary or secondary care. Therefore it is essential to be able to deal with these complex situations with confidence.

The Clinical Psychiatry Postgraduate Diploma will improve your knowledge to ensure the best patient outcome. In addition, you'll be up to date with new classifications, treatments, and assessments that integrate psychological and social sciences, demonstrate how the field links to others (such as acute medicine, surgery, perinatal services, children’s services and primary care) and have an understanding of how the Capacity Acts and Mental Health Act influence delivery of services and the implications for you as a healthcare professional.
