The idea of the High Diploma in Community Mental Health Programme
The idea of the diploma programme came to light in 1994, and the first batch of students enrolled in 1997, under the direction of GCMHP, in partnership with the following local and international universities:
Islamic University of Gaza – Palestine
Utrecht University – Netherlands
University of Oslo – Norway
University of Tunis – Tunis
University of San Francisco – United States
Flinders University – Australia
Gaza Community Mental Health Programme has signed a cooperation agreement with IUG for governing the diploma, and the agreement is in effect until today.
* The study continues for two years through which it includes theoretical and practical courses. Specialists from GCMHP supervise the practical training.
* The student guide of the higher diploma programme in community mental health is committed to the internal laws of the postgraduate programme in IUG for the 2017-2018 unless the guide stipulates otherwise with the consent of the Academic Council of Higher Diploma.
* Graduates of the higher diploma can join the master programme at IUG, faculty of education without requirement for pre master course.
* Note: Until 2018, 20 batches of students have enrolled on the higher diploma programme of approximately 300 male and female students.
