2020 NHS Digital data showed that 1 in 6 children and young people had some form of diagnosable mental health condition and that this is a risk factor for a range of negative outcomes. This module will introduce you to the key mental health and wellbeing issues which children and young people face in contemporary society. This might include a focus on depression, anxiety and self-harm, but also childhood vulnerability, adverse childhood experiences, trauma and loss. It also considers the context, behaviour and features in education and society that impact on children and young people’s mental health.
This is a compulsory module on the MSc Psychology Conversion programme. There are no pre-requisites to this module.
