Master of Youth Mental Health
- 3 years part time
- Available to domestic and international students.
The course is designed for health-care professionals working in a range of clinical and community contexts, and draws on contributions by world-leading experts in the field to provide students with the latest theory, research and evidence-based approaches in this specialised area of mental health. The learning content is of direct relevance to a wide range of health-care professionals, including psychiatrists, general practitioners, psychologists, nurses, occupational therapists, social workers and youth workers.
The Master of Youth Mental Health has been developed by the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Youth Mental Health in collaboration with Orygen, The National Centre of Excellence in Youth Mental Health to strengthen the capacity of the youth mental health workforce both nationally and internationally. The launch of this new course structure and content reflects contemporary developments in the field. This course is possibly the only graduate program in Australia that is dedicated entirely to youth mental health, and it meets a need in the market by offering mental health professionals structured learning and professional development opportunities specifically tailored to enhance their capacity to work gainfully with young people experiencing mental ill-health, across a breadth of community and clinical settings.
