Adolescence is an important and dynamic period of life, comprising significant physical changes, cognitive development, and emotional maturation. For most, there is a benign transition from childhood into adulthood, however, adolescence can be a tumultuous period, as the brain undergoes significant structural and functional changes during this critical period. This course will introduce you to key factors associated with youth mental health including social connectedness, digital life, and sleep-wake patterns. You will investigate the neurobiology of the various syndromes and disorders that emerge in the adolescent period, and focus on specialised services and treatment approaches.
