Children's Mental Health eReview

This online publication promotes the use of research in practice and policy in order to improve services and ultimately promote children’s mental health. Each issue of Children's Mental Health eReview features a review of published research and a collection of responses from practitioners and policy professionals about effective ways to use that research in practice. Guest research and practice authors participate in writing each issue.

Why an eReview? Children’s mental health research has been growing rapidly over the past several decades. Much of it has practical implications for improving practice and ultimately the health of children. But professionals rarely have time to find and review research that could inform their work, and they need creative ideas about how to apply the research in specific settings with specific populations.

The Children’s Mental Health eReview offers easy access to extensive research reviews along with practical implications. Each issue reflects the expertise of a group of people in diverse research and practice settings.
