Child & Adolescent Mental Health & Wellbeing at Edge Hill University - UCAS

Course summary

Explore why children and young people experience mental ill health. From pre-conception to adulthood, investigate the influences on wellbeing, barriers to treatment and how mental health develops as they grow. One in eight children are now diagnosed with a mental illness, while many more experience signs and symptoms of mental ill health. If you want to work in children’s services offering support to children, young people and their families experiencing mental health problems, this progressive degree is for you. Professionals in this sector are finding increasing numbers of children accessing services because of their mental health needs. Our child and adolescent mental health and wellbeing degree asks ‘why’? It delves into how we should address this crucial issue and how we can make treatment accessible. Examine key Government policies and explore interventions to understand what methods work. Weigh up the strengths and weaknesses of cross-discipline approaches to treatment and support. You’ll boost your employability with practical work experience during this evidence-based programme of study. Or perhaps you’ll use your degree as a foundation for further study.
