Featured Journal: School Mental Health Journal
Our next featured journal is one that I’ve been directly involved in over the past 7 years, as both an author and now as an Associate Editor, School Mental Health Journal. In existence since 2009, the journal has established itself as a go-to resource for multiple disciplines who are exploring what works in school mental health.
In this journal, you will find articles written by researchers in social work, psychology, education, and other school mental health fields, many of them writing about interventions and specific school populations that school social workers serve every day.
Starting today, we will feature a selection of open access articles from this journal for you to download and start using, kicking things off with this interesting article by child and adolescent psychiatrists on the barriers to effective implementation of a CBITS program in schools, “Evidence-Based Mental Health Programs in Schools: Barriers and Facilitators of Successful Implementation.”
There will be a number of other free articles from School Mental Health Journal in the next month, (including a few by yours truly), addressing everything from school social work practice to school mental health/child welfare connections to anxiety interventions in schools–enjoy!
