Overview

The  Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMH)  programme offered by the University of South Wales  is distinctive in that it provides a non-clinical route for generalist and more specialist practitioners, managers and researchers to develop their knowledge of CAMH in a broad context. It is the only course of its kind in Wales and one of very few similar courses available in England.  

This CAMH course develops knowledgeable and reflective professionals who are able to draw on evidence-based practice in ways that will impact on the workplace and on outcomes for the children and young people in those services. 

It has been designed to provide opportunities for students to develop their professional knowledge, skills and understanding and most importantly their capacity for critical thinking. This postgraduate qualification in CAMH offers you the opportunity to learn alongside professionals from a range of professional backgrounds and diverse backgrounds in a highly supportive context. 

Careers

Students on the MA CAMH Course are often professionals working in Children’s Services (education, health and social care) who would like to develop their expertise in relation to CAMH issues as they find themselves working with children and young people with a greater range of more complex difficulties. 

Practitioners have used their studies to support promotion within a service and/or a move into a more specialist role. Increasingly students have just completed their undergraduate degree and are using the MA qualification to strengthen their applications in a competitive job market.
