About

In the Global Mental Health programme from University of Glasgow you will gain the tools needed to improve mental health services anywhere in the world.

As part of our efforts to understand the challenges faced by low-income countries, we collaborate with various institutions, including the University of Rwanda, to help fuel the programme’s international outlook. Together, we’re committed to preventing disease, improving health and wellbeing, and reducing inequalities locally, nationally and globally.

When it comes to investment, mental health trails far behind other fields of healthcare. This opens a world of opportunity for passionate people looking to create sustainable strategies to address the treatment gap and lead the charge for mental wellbeing. Ranked 2nd for Medicine (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2018), the University of Glasgow recognises the importance of addressing the global mental health treatment gap and, because of this, our programme matches global mental health goals set by the United Nations.
