MSc Global Mental HealthContact Muftau Mohammed
I studied Medicine (MBBS) and obtained postgraduate clinical training in psychiatry from the West African College of Physicians. I also hold an MSc in Child and Adolescent Mental Health. I have spent a few years practising clinical psychiatry.
Research interests or career goals
My research interests include the development, implementation, and evaluation of culturally appropriate interventions to reduce the huge treatment gap for mental and substance use disorders in diverse contexts. My recent research effort involved testing the effectiveness of a training programme for primary school teachers to identify and support children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and conduct disorder in Nigeria.
Why I chose LSHTM/my programme
The recognition of the huge inequities in mental healthcare access for populations especially in low- and middle-income countries motivated me to study the Global Mental Health MSc at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), a course jointly delivered with King’s College London. The outstanding reputation of LSHTM in public health meant that I would learn from researchers at the cutting edge of knowledge.
LSHTM is a perfect study destination for students to establish long-term academic/professional relationships with staff and students from diverse backgrounds.
