We know half of all mental health conditions emerge before age fourteen, but there’s a need for a greater understanding of young people’s mental wellbeing.
On Childhood Adversity - The Impact of Childhood Maltreatment on Mental Health at FutureLearn, you’ll improve your understanding of how early adverse experiences can impact a young person’s mental health.
You’ll learn from world leaders in child development and hear from educators in disciplines like neuroscience and educational psychology.
Using evidence-based research, you’ll examine the different ways childhood trauma can influence an individual’s psychological state, educational outcomes and social difficulties.
