CALL FOR PAPERS
Global Mental Health: opportunities, challenges, and the future of the field
PLOS GLOBAL PUBLIC HEALTH
PLOS Global Public Health are calling for submissions related to Global Mental Health: opportunities, challenges, and the future of the field. Submission deadline, May 10, 2023.
Recent years have underlined the central role mental health plays in an individual and society’s quality of life, with impacts on physical health and the ability of people to live fulfilling, productive lives. In the context of ongoing global pandemics, growing inequality, conflicts and wars, and a disparity in access to healthcare across the globe, the need for quality, accessible, affordable mental health care services is more acute than ever and is urgently called for in policy spaces, including the Sustainable Development Goals.
In this Call for Papers, we invite researchers to submit original research which engages with, or disrupts, the urgent needs across the global mental health landscape. We especially encourage submissions of studies that critically interrogate the status quo of the field and that involve inter-/trans-disciplinary approaches and those which share perspectives from underrepresented global regions and communities.
We welcome clinical and applied public health research in epidemiology, public health, clinical trials, implementation science, health economics, humanities and the social sciences as well as systematic reviews, papers researching new or improved diagnostic tests or methods, and qualitative studies.
PLOS Global Public Health is an open-access journal that addresses deeply entrenched global inequities in public health and makes impactful research visible and accessible to health professionals, policy-makers, and local communities without barriers.
