Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Nursing (JCAPN) is the only nursing journal to focus exclusively on issues of child and adolescent mental health around the world. As a primary resource for nurses and other healthcare professionals in clinical practice, educator roles, and those conducting research in mental health and psychiatric care, the journal includes peer-reviewed, original articles from a wide range of contributors in a broad variety of settings. The breadth of topics covered in JCAPN includes psychosocial issues, psychopharmacology, the impact of interventions on cognitive, social, or emotional growth and development, environmental factors that facilitate or constrain mental health, social policy factors that influence the delivery of healthcare services, care of emotionally disturbed children in schools, inpatient and outpatient settings, care within the juvenile justice system, and psychiatric nursing education and research. Columns highlight conferences held around the world, book reviews of popular literature useful to clinicians, and case studies. Special theme topics are published periodically as an outcome of conferences and needs of the readers.
