Abstract

This research explored the role of education in preparing graduate occupational therapists for the field of mental health and beyond. It draws on the WHO Mental Health Action Plan (2013 – 2020) in examining how the knowledge and skills of occupational therapists can be enhanced. This was considered not only in terms of delivery of evidence based, culturally appropriate and human rights orientated mental health care, but also through effective problem solving, leadership, advocacy of the profession, team work, and the strengthening of evidence and research for mental health.
