Mental Health academics and industry specialists recently came together for the first MSc Mental Health Economics Advisory Board.
The Board has been designed to ensure that the School of Economics and Finance develops and delivers an innovative programme in our new MSc Mental Health Economics and will ensure the programme will equip students with the skills and tools they need to make a real impact in improving mental health policies and outcomes. The Board will regularly review the programme offering and ensure the School appropriately balances theoretical teaching, industry insights and practical elements.
In their first meeting, they discussed the curriculum outline for the MSc in Mental Health Economics and the needs of the healthcare sector to better equip Mental Health professionals and policy makers to understand the social-economic dimension of mental health issues and to design, implement and evaluate interventions.
The Board includes the following members:
The MSc Mental Health Economics Board will meet twice a year and contribute insights from their range of disciplines and expertise to continually improve and adapt our innovative new programme.
Our interdisciplinary MSc in Mental Health Economics is the first programme of its kind to focus explicitly on Mental Health Economics, delivered jointly by the School of Economics and Finance and the Wolfson Institute of Population Health.
