Make a bigger difference and reshape the statistics in youth mental health.
It is estimated that one in five young people suffer serious mental health issues.* With that statistic on the rise, there is increasing demand for health and community workers who have the skills and knowledge to improve the mental wellbeing of young people.
Designed for health professionals working across a range of community and clinical settings, the Youth Mental Health program features the only graduate courses in the world that are dedicated entirely to youth mental health.
Developed by leading experts, these courses give you access to the latest theory, research and evidence-based approaches to working with young people in creative ways. Flexible online delivery is designed to fit the schedule of busy, practising professionals.
You can progress from the Graduate Certificate to the Graduate Diploma and finally the Master of Youth Mental Health, or apply directly to the Graduate Diploma and Master awards.
Alternatively, you can undertake the Graduate Certificate in Managing Youth Self-Harm and Suicide.
