Mental Health

Would you like to work in mental healthcare? And would you like to learn how to best treat, diagnose and manage different disorders? Or would you like to do research into psychological disorders? Then Mental Health is the programme you’re looking for. In this programme, you’ll gain the practical skills necessary to assess and manage various mental healthcare problems. You’ll also have the opportunity to do a clinical internship and a research internship, where you’ll obtain essential skills in the areas of diagnostics, interventions and research. Depending on your interests, you can either specialise in adult psychopathology or child and adolescent psychopathology. After obtaining their master’s, many graduates enrol in a post-graduate training programme in mental healthcare or psychotherapy. Others secure a PhD position and pursue a career in science.

  • Next to my dream of becoming a clinical psychologist, I also see myself as a researcher. Perhaps I’ll become a part-time researcher and psychologist

  • With this study I’m more versatile as a psychiatric nurse. The scientific basis gives my work a profound depth

      Master Mental Health is a 12-month master but as of the second week of March we didn't have any tutorial groups or lectures anymore. That doesn't mean you can chill 😎 The rest of the time you'll be focusing on your thesis and perhaps the clinical internship if you still have that. Right now, I'm busy writing my thesis regarding male sexual abuse. #mentoo
