Join us for this year's Women's Mental Health short course. It takes place on 4-6th July 2017 at the IoPPN, King's College London. 

Our course provides an introduction to research methods to investigate risk factors and the effectiveness of interventions for women’s mental health problems.

The course takes place over 3 days:

Day 1: Introduction to women’s mental health and research methodologies

Day 2: Perinatal mental health

Day 3: Violence to women and mental health

and aims to:

  1. demonstrate knowledge of gender differences in the prevalence, presentation and prognosis of mental disorders and biological and sociocultural influences on these differences
  2. identify and develop strategies to manage key ethical and safety issues in women’s mental health research
  3. evaluate research designs and methodologies used in women’s mental health research.
