Course content

The MSc Advanced Practice in Health and Social Care: Child and Adolescent Mental Health is for healthcare professionals working in child and adolescent mental health services. It will prepare students to be part of a specialist research-focused workforce to help revolutionise mental health care to better meet society's changing demographic health needs through new innovative and creative working practices.

Children and young people's mental health is fundamental for them to live, learn and relate. It underpins their capacity to access the resources offered by early years services, education and, ultimately, adult society. It is an integral part of the five outcomes identified in Every Child Matters (2006).

For people who work in or alongside children's services, working together across traditional professional boundaries is essential to promote good mental health, prevent mental health problems and provide clear care pathways to enable children and families to access the care services they require.
