Youth Mental Health Master Class

Course Description

75% of all serious mental disorders start before the age of 25 and until only recently, specific treatments for young people have been neglected.

The poor mental health of young people is now receiving more attention and services are being set up to tackle this problem. At Warwick Medical School we have assembled a group of leading academic experts in the field to explore this area of such importance. Our course is designed to educate and inspire health care workers interested in the field.

Topics covered include:
-The rationale, problems and solutions to providing specific care to young people with mental health problems.
-Novel approaches to working and engaging young people in treatment.
-Updates on management of common mental disorders in young people including mood disorders and emerging psychotic disorders.

This interactive course uses a mixture of teaching methods, including group work, practical exercises, and talks from WMS academics such as include Professor Max Birchwood and Professor Swaran Singh.

A certificate of course attendance and course completion will be will be issued by the University of Warwick.

This course is designed for those involved in working with young people with mental health problems. The course would suit NHS professionals including interested GPs, psychiatrists, nurses and allied health professions. It may also be of interest to professionals working in the third sector who have a good working knowledge of the area. It focuses on theory, models and new approaches to the assessment and management of youth mental health difficulties.
