Founded in 1941, the Department of Mental Health attracts students from all over the country and around the world—each contributing in a unique way to a dynamic learning environment on the cutting edge of mental health research. As a component within the Johns Hopkins Medical Campus community, the Department of Mental Health engages in a wide range of collaborative projects which actively engages our students in research projects.
The City of Baltimore provides rich social, cultural and academic activities. The Bloomberg School's proximity to other major cities such as Washington, DC, Philadelphia and New York offers students further opportunities for exploration and research experiences.
Students may also tap into the resources of the other schools within Johns Hopkins University, which extends across the Baltimore-Washington region and offers many academic disciplines.
The Department of Mental Health offers doctoral training programs leading to the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), and the Doctor of Public Health (DrPH), and a master’s program which leads to the Master of Health Science (MHS) degree.
