Philosophy and Ethics of Mental Health

This interdisciplinary programme responds to the rapidly expanding 2-way contact between philosophers and practitioners in the field of mental health; the course provides a unique opportunity for philosophers to have their understanding informed by the practical experiences of those working in mental health, and for practitioners to share the insights of modern philosophy; the course brings together elements of both philosophy and psychiatry; attracting a mix of academically orientated philosophy graduates and mental health professionals, it offers an example of the value there can be in engaging philosophy with practice and policy.
