Course content

The MA Mental Health in Children and Young People focuses on the nature of mental health in educational and social care environments for children and young people, examining how mental health can impact on an individual.

This is a practitioner-focused course that will equip you with the skills, knowledge and understanding to work in a multi-professional environment with individuals and families, with a focus on promoting and supporting positive mental health.

We’ve designed this course in the context of present challenges in working with young people and families in supporting positive mental health.

You will address issues at an advanced practical level, such as how to identify wellbeing concerns, as well as how organisations can understand their role in supporting mental health and emotional wellbeing.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have the skills, knowledge, and experience to make a positive impact on the mental health of children and young people.
