MHN702 Youth Mental Health and Neurobiology

Adolescence is a dynamic period of significant physical changes, cognitive development and emotional maturation. It can also be a tumultuous period, as the brain undergoes significant structural and functional changes. Half of mental health conditions emerge by 14 years of age, hence the need for understanding of adolescent neurobiology. In this course, you will investigate the neurobiology of the disorders that emerge in adolescence, and focus on specialised youth mental health services, as well as key factors including social connectedness, digital life and sleep-wake patterns.
