Master of Youth Mental Health
The Master of Youth Mental Health is designed for professionals working in health related fields and aims to enhance their capacity to deliver services that assist young people experiencing mental ill-health by providing the latest theory, research and evidence-based approaches in this area. The course covers a broad spectrum of subject matter, including major theories of youth development and mental ill-health, different forms of mental ill-health in young people, biological and psychosocial treatments, prevention and early intervention approaches, and tailored engagement and assessment strategies when working with young people. In the final year of the program, students have the opportunity to learn about optimal approaches for delivering and managing youth mental health services, and are required to complete either a minor research project or major capstone experience.
