We develop investigative capacities of our professionals around the mental health of children and adolescents, from a public health perspective that allows a positive impact on the context.

Through different research approaches, we present the main conceptual and methodological aspects, oriented towards addressing various problems inherent to the mental health of children and adolescents.

We train in the formulation of research projects in the framework of mental health.

We promote a vision of the mental health of children and adolescents from different conceptual models in public health.

We develop our program in four face-to-face and independent cycles, offering our students the possibility of integrating knowledge from different disciplines to investigate aspects concerning the mental health of children and adolescents.
