Course overview

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.

About this course

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.

You will look into support offered to children and young people with identified needs and how provision is designed, monitored, evaluated and implemented as well as developing a preventative approach to meeting need. We will also focus on emerging issues within mental health, ensuring that you are at the forefront of practice nationally and internationally.

The course will adopt a multidisciplinary approach, with three elements that focus on theory, practice and research in mental health that are integrated into each module. You will explore a range of evidence-based practice in early intervention methods for promoting emotional wellbeing. We also make sure there is plenty of focus on employability and progression within the area of mental health in education and social care, which will include one-to-one support for individual career planning.

There will be a chance to personalise your assessments throughout the course, with negotiated tasks linked to your own strengths to evidence the course outcomes.

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.
