Aims and Scope: Community Mental Health Journal

Community Mental Health Journal focuses on the improvement of public sector services for people who are affected by or at risk of severe mental disorders, serious emotional disturbances, and/or addictions. Papers of interest to the Journal's readers include nationally representative epidemiologic projects as well as intervention research involving benefit and risk comparisons between service programs. While not a priority for the Journal, manuscripts that address methodology (such as instrumentation) pertinent to public sector behavioral health evaluation or research will also be considered.  Articles that only describe local surveys, case series, or service programs lacking comparison groups will not be accepted.
