This unit provides students with the skills and an understanding of how to integrate their knowledge and experiences into a capstone project that generates new knowledge and / or insights for the improvement of mental health care.

The unit  brings together students from the NSW Institute of Psychiatry’s Masters of Applied Mental Health Studies and Masters of Psychiatric Medicine Frameworks, maximising opportunities for interdisciplinary insight and collaboration, both during study and in practice settings.

Guided by the second semester Mental Health Capstone (S2) unit learning outcomes, students will formulate a detailed proposal for either a research or non-research capstone project, to a standard that meets submission requirements for ethics committee review.

RANZCP students have the opportunity to align assessment tasks in this unit to assist with preparation for their RANZCP Scholarly Project.
