The Master of Youth Mental Health is a three-year, part-time course, consisting of 4 x 12.5 point subjects per year.
The course is delivered online through the Centre of Youth Mental Health at The University of Melbourne.
It is designed for health-care professionals working in a range of clinical and community contexts. It 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.
