Aims and Scope

Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMH) publishes peer-reviewed research, practice innovations and reviews of relevance to practitioners, commissioners and researchers with an interest in child and adolescent mental health. Its principal aim is to foster evidence-based clinical practice and clinically orientated research. CAMH is aimed at practitioners working with children and adolescents in relation to or with a particular interest in mental health. Papers need to be of direct clinical relevance to and clearly draw out the clinical implications for mental health practitioners. Non-clinical studies need to highlight their direct relevance to clinical practice. Wide ranging and international in coverage, CAMH includes reviews, original articles, preliminary reports and evaluations of innovative approaches and new service developments.

The Editors aim to publish high-quality, evidence-based research of practical clinical relevance to all professionals working with children and young people, including members of multi-disciplinary child and adolescent mental health services. The journal has regular sections of broader based interest - Measurement Issues, Innovations in Practice and Book News. Author Guidelines are published on the inside back cover and regularly updated on the journal website:
