SNIES: 102793 | Qualified registration: Resolution 12530 of September 13, 2013

Our program makes a reading of the realities of the new generations, investigates about the strategies that favor their development and builds knowledge around the mental health of these populations in Colombia, ensuring their empowerment within society, where they are architects of their own destiny and bearers of their rights, duties and opportunities.

For this reason we train professionals capable of generating knowledge about the mental health of children and adolescents, which allow establishing plans, programs, projects and approach strategies that favor their integral development of society.

We develop our program in four face-to-face and independent cycles, offering our students the possibility of strengthening their knowledge of mental health in childhood and adolescence based on research and applied practice.
