Course Summary

Did you know there has been a significant rise in the rate of mental health issues in young people? Evidence shows that early help can make a big difference.

Our MSc Child & Adolescent Mental Health & Wellbeing gives you the knowledge and skills to deliver better results for children. We’ve designed the course around key legislation, policy, guidelines and practice.

You’ll learn to develop and challenge current thinking and reflect on how to deliver best practice. We’ll help you develop your leadership skills as you learn to bring about effective transformation.

Develop a dual approach as a result of your evidence-based reading and research. Early help as a preventative measure and the importance of protecting and promoting lifelong mental health and wellbeing.

This Masters is ideal if you work, or want to work, in children and young people’s mental health. You’ll develop broad applied research skills relevant to today’s education, community, health and social care sectors.


Dissertation enables you to focus upon a significant piece of investigative enquiry in an area of interest, from conceptualisation through to completion. The module will develop your skills as an independent learner who is able to manage a project over an extended period of time. Critically evaluating existing research and theoretical perspectives to identify a gap in research knowledge, you will be expected to justify the choice of methodology and underpinning theory, analyse the impact of the research project and appraise the ethical considerations encountered during your research. The module is assessed by the production of a 10,000-12,000 word thesis.
