Find out more about the TEF.

If you have ever wondered why children and adolescents experience mental illnesses such as anxiety, depression and conduct disorder, or if you have an ambition to work in children’s services and support children, young people and their families experiencing mental health problems, then this innovative degree is for you. Professionals working in this sector are finding increasing numbers of children are accessing services because of their mental health needs, often a response to what is happening in their lives. Three in ten children are now diagnosed with a mental illness and many more experience feelings of inadequacy. On this degree you will examine key Government policies and explore interventions to understand what works while considering the strengths and weaknesses of cross-discipline approaches to treatment and support. High quality research and evidence-based practice are embedded into the programme, as is extensive work experience to support your future employability or progression onto further study.
