Mental health and wellbeing stream

Mental health and wellbeing are highly associated with adjustment to and success in personal, family, educational and social contexts.

The mental health and wellbeing stream will give you an in-depth understanding of the determinants of both psychological distress and psychological health. You’ll learn to understand the impact of biological (especially brain function), emotional, social and cultural factors on the expression of mental health and disorders and how they’re understood, evaluated and treated.

You’ll be exposed to models of assessment, diagnosis, intervention, prevention, and health promotion. You’ll have opportunities for hands-on learning through community placements, applied coursework and/or research.
