Mental Health & Prevention

Considering that insights in primary and secondary prevention of mental disorders are becoming ever increasingly important in health care, economics and health political aspects, Mental Health & Prevention serves as a peer reviewed and multidisciplinary communication platform, covering all aspects of mental health and its preservation. Mental Health & Prevention publishes reviews, original research and other papers related to research on prevention to support the psychological development of human beings from early childhood across the life span until the old age. The journal focuses on preventive strategies of:

  • mental disorders in childhood and adolescence,
  • antisocial and violent behavior,
  • drug addiction,
  • mood or stress-related disorders,
  • eating- and sleep disorders,
  • psychoses and schizophrenia, and
  • dementia.

Within its broad scope the journal also welcomes articles from other subject fields like social, occupational and somatic medicine, epidemiology and health service research.
