The Mental Health programme of Trinity College Dublin is run in partnership with The National Forensic Mental Health Service and is designed to enhance the collaboration between disciplines working with individuals with mental health problems.


Course Description

Students in the Mental Health programme of Trinity College Dublin will come from a variety of professions: nursing; medicine; occupational therapy; social work; An Garda Síochána; legal; psychology; probation and prison services.

Students on this programme are recognised as practising professionals with a resource of practice and educational skills and knowledge that will enhance their learning at this advanced stage of their personal and professional pathway. Each student is considered unique in life experiences, motivation for learning, learning style and scholastic ability.

Throughout the programme a variety of student-focused teaching strategies is used, including co-operative learning, self-directed learning and experiential learning methods. Interdisciplinary sharing of knowledge and perspectives is encouraged and rewarded. Students' past experiences are valued and integrated as a rich source of reflection and learning. Feedback and support are tailored to meet the individual needs of the student. Students also have an opportunity to engage in shaping aspects of the educational programme.

Students are enabled to reflect, inquire, critique, problem solve, evaluate and debate professional and practice issues in an academically robust manner. Students are empowered to generate evidence that will improve practice and are guided and supported through that process. 

Graduates of this programme, in applying their learning, can be expected to provide high quality care, leadership and education and to promote and develop excellence in their practice setting. The student is viewed as an active participant with responsibility for his/her own learning and development. Hence, the curriculum is focused on a transactional model of education, which strives to be collegial in nature and promotes independent, self-directed learning and self-evaluation.
