Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

examine notions of social and emotional wellbeing, the continuum of mental health and notions of resilience

identify and discuss the causes, indicators and risk factors associated with children's mental health, including issues of change, loss and grief

explain the role that schools, community organisations and professions, governments and families play in promoting health

critically evaluate a range of health promotion models, strategies, services and resources designed to support health promotion with particular focus on social and emotional wellbeing

reflect on ways they can better support children and young people's health within their own professional context.
