Overview

Why are teenagers more prone to mental health issues, and how can we help them?

Young People and Their Mental Health, a FutureLearn course from the University of Groningen, University of Cambridge, and University Medical Center Groningen, or UMCG, can provide guidance. Led by UMCG colleagues Tineke Oldehinkel, professor of psychiatry, and Maaike Meurs, postdoctoral researcher, the course covers the most common mental health issues, what can be done, and how we can improve mental health.

With insight from mental health patients and professionals describing the often-confusing experiences of adolescent mental health, this course will be useful for parents, teachers, and adolescents alike.

Up to 75% of mental health problems start before the age of 24. Mental health problems during adolescence may also have negative consequences in the longer term.
