About this course

There has been much focus on distinctions between mental health disorders and their symptoms, even when investigating the causes of and connections between mental illnesses.

Furthermore, there has been a tendency to conflate mental wellbeing and mental illness, with few studies of mental wellbeing in children until recently.

In this “So What?” Seminar, Dr. Praveetha Patalay will present data on the associations between and the correlates of mental health disorders and mental wellbeing in childhood and lead up to asking: What can we measure to improve screening and evaluate interventions in child mental health, especially in the context of community settings?

Praveetha’s presentation will be followed by an interactive panel discussion.

This seminar will be suitable for anyone working as a practitioner, researcher or policy maker within CAMHS or associated fields, and will be facilitated by Professor Miranda Wolpert.

It will be the fourth in the Child Outcome Research Consortium (CORC) and Evidence Based Practice Unit (EBPU)’s co-hosted “So What?” Seminar Series. The series aims to bridge evidence and practice in child mental health by asking "So what does this mean for policy and practice?" in response to research findings, project outcomes, and the work of our collaborators.
