Dr Tony Bates, Director of Headstrong, The National Centre for Youth Mental Health

"I found the breadth and depth of the UCD undergraduate psychology course and my later experience of completing a PhD in the UCD School of Psychology to be compelling and inspiring. It introduced me to the complexity and richness of the human personality. In my life as a psychologist, the insights I achieved through studying at UCD have allowed me to appreciate the challenge of healing the mind and strengthening resilience, and to see through the appalling limits of what is often considered to be best practice."
