Students Complete 'Scholars Programme' Looking at Mental Health
Several of our students celebrated graduating from our Scholars Programme last week.
The course was with PhD student Emma Wilson on the topic of ‘Mental Health: Beyond the Nature vs. Nurture Debate’.
Students explored the concepts of mental health and mental illness among young people and adolescents, examining some of the biological, social and psychological reasons that someone may be at risk of developing a mental illness.
They also learnt about the biopsychosocial model of mental health and applied it to anxiety and depression. The students developed their research skills and obtained a greater understanding of the different causes of mental health and mental illness.
