University is getting ready to launch a new MA in Mental Health in Children and
Young People this September.
practitioner-focused course will equip postgraduate students with the skills,
knowledge and understanding to respond to the mental health needs of children
and young people and promote positive mental health.
Through the use of
evidence-based research, the course will address the present challenges in
working with young people and families, as well as emerging issues at the
forefront of national and international practice.
The course is
designed for people who want to make a real and practical difference; aligned
with the recent Government strategy which focuses on the development of mental
health professionals to support children and young people.
Bev Peartree, the
Course Leader for the new MA said:
“I am looking forward
to the launch of this course as this is a very new and exciting area of
education at postgraduate level and one that many sector specialists have been
wanting for a long time.
“The course will be
launched before the national strategy is fully implemented in this area, so graduates
from this Masters will be the new leaders in this field of work, developing
innovative practice in this area of emotional well-being.”
Students will address
issues at an advanced practical level, exploring a range of early intervention
methods for promoting emotional well-being and learning how to safeguard
children and young people effectively with mental health needs.
They will also become
familiar with learning and living environments for children and young people,
ensuring precautions are taken to prevent mental health issues and promote
positive mental health for all.
The course will also
focus on employability and progression, including one-to-one support for
individual career planning. Students will graduate with the skills, knowledge
and experience to make a positive impact on the mental health of children and
young people and meet the demands of the sector.
