Div. 18 welcomes manuscripts for Psychological

Psychological Services is seeking submissions for a special issue on
“Public Mental Health Innovations: From Theory to Practice,”
to be edited by Philip Magaletta, PhD, Femina P. Varghese,
PhD, and Anne Klee, PhD. The journal is interested in articles
that offer a fresh look at continuing problems and challenges
in public mental health, and first looks at addressing emerging
issues. Papers should focus on organized care settings, such as
police departments, jails, schools and community health centers.
The journal will give priority to manuscripts with empirical
data on process, outcome and effectiveness, but will consider
well-developed manuscripts on conceptual and policy issues.
The submission deadline is May 31. Follow the “Instructions
to Authors” information on the Psychological Services website
at www.apa.org/pubs/journals/ser and submit manuscripts at
