An increasing body of evidence indicates that mental health issues are responsible for a large proportion of the burden of disability experienced by people across the world. As healthcare practitioners involved in ongoing close personal interaction with clients, physiotherapists need to be aware of the impact of mental health on the conditions experienced and on how their management can positively influence this aspect of their patient's well being. In this programme of courses we will explore a range of relevant topics and explore how physical therapists can tackle this important and complex issue.


To provide a comprehensive overview of the topic of mental health and how this relates to the role of physiotherapists and physical therapists.
