The global mental health research group held together a 2 week PhD research course in June 2017 called:

Mental health and child development in societies of change.

It was a methodological multi-disciplinary course that had mental health in focus. Its research perspective primarily addressed: global health policies on mental health; health system integration strategies; mental health and culture (including bold exposures and risk factors such as forced migration); dealing with extreme burdens (such as war, crime, deprivation, undernutrition and abuse); alcohol and drugs; and child development.

The course was well received and is now part of the Bergen Summer Research School  course portfolio
