The Journal of Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing is an international journal which publishes research and scholarly papers that advance the development of policy and practice in psychiatric and mental health nursing. We publish methodologically, ethically and theoretically rigorous research which adds new knowledge to the field and has the potential to improve the lives of those affected by mental health problems.
The journal aims to facilitate the translation of research into psychiatric and mental health nursing practice, to give space to practitioner and consumer perspectives, and to ensure research published in the journal can be understood by a wide audience.
This journal welcomes papers on all subjects within the field of psychiatric and mental health nursing, including but not limited to the following topics:
• The promotion of self-management and recovery from mental health problems
• The interaction between physical, social and mental wellbeing
• Interventions that have the potential to improve both inpatient and community based care
• Developments in broader areas of health and society which affect mental health such as new technologies, health economics, public policy, public health and mental health legislation
Papers must clearly demonstrate relevance to psychiatric and mental health nursing, implications for practice and policy, and the potential to advance knowledge in an international range of diverse cultural and economic arenas. The journal encourages critical debate and exchange of ideas, and therefore welcomes commentaries and letters to the editor.
