The Graduate Diploma in Youth Mental Health has been developed by the University of Melbourne’s Centre for Youth Mental Health in collaboration with Orygen, The National Centre of Excellence in Youth Mental Health to strengthen the capacity of the youth mental health workforce both nationally and internationally. The course is designed for health-care professionals working in a range of clinical and community contexts, and draws on contributions by world-leading experts in the field to provide students with the latest theory, research and evidence-based approaches in this specialised area of mental health.

The course is delivered wholly online and is offered as a nested program, allowing students to exit with a Graduate Certificate after 1 year of part-time study. Upon completing the Graduate Diploma, students who meet the minimum academic requirements (i.e., an average of 70% across the course) can also choose to progress to the Master of Youth Mental Health.
