Clinically relevant, important advances in the field of mental health
Launched in 1998, the purpose of Evidence-Based Mental Health is to alert clinicians working in the field of mental health to important and clinically relevant advances in treatment (including specific interventions and systems of care), diagnosis, aetiology, prognosis/outcome research, quality improvement, continuing education, economic evaluation, and qualitative research. The editors select original and review articles whose results are most likely to be accurate and clinically useful. The articles are then summarised in value-added abstracts and a commentary by a clinical expert is added. The procedures that are used to select and abstract journal articles are based closely on those developed by the title's sister journal, Evidence-Based Medicine.
