Child and Adolescent
Mental health problems in children and adolescents are growing in prevalence and complexity with an earlier age of onset. A specialisation in Child and Adolescent mental health develops the ability to apply a range of skills and knowledge appropriately to this age group. Assessment, diagnosis and interventions are developed within a recovery focused framework providing optimal outcomes for young people and their families.
Students will critically evaluate multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary service delivery, consider wider systems issues and effectively engage young people and their families in care.
