The Postgraduate Certificate in Mental Health Promotion
is a part-time outreach programme (Level 9) that has been
jointly developed by NUI Galway and Mental Health Ireland.
This programme is designed for professionals working in
different sectors who wish to develop the knowledge, skills and
competencies of mental health promotion and its implementation
in practice. The programme’s aim is to provide participants with
professional education and training in the principles and practice
of promoting positive mental health and well-being. Course
participants will acquire an understanding of the concepts,
principles and evidence base for mental health promotion
and the practical implementation of mental health promotion
interventions from a national and international perspective.
Programme delivery is through blended learning with online
course materials for self-study accompanied by face-to-face
instruction through lectures and workshops, with students
attending one day per month throughout the academic year.
On-site delivery will be offered at the NUI Galway campus. This
programme is open to those working in a professional capacity
in areas such as mental health, health promotion, public health,
primary care, education, community work, nursing, social work,
psychology and allied fields.
