Call for Papers: Mental Health and Social Inclusion

Journal call for papers from Mental Health and Social Inclusion

Call for Papers: Mental Health and Social Inclusion
Editor: Adam Pozner

The editorial team of Mental Health and Social Inclusion (MHSI) is currently seeking contributions. The Journal focuses on social inclusion issues for people who have mental health problems. It looks at how people can enjoy fuller lives in their local communities – finding jobs, learning new skills, volunteering or participating in arts, sports and leisure activities. Other areas explored include housing, finance, spirituality, cultural diversity, friendships and relationships.

The Journal is practical in focus and enables readers to keep up to date with innovative approaches, best practice, difficulties, dilemmas and possible solutions.

The style of the journal is accessible and practical. We encourage contributors to introduce a strong narrative into what they write – to ‘tell a story’ that has a strong ‘human interest’ dimension, and which is likely to be of interest to others. We also encourage contributors to identify ‘lessons learnt’ that may be of value to others.


The editorial team warmly welcomes approaches from anyone who would like to consider contributing to the Journal. Contributions can take a variety of forms, i.e. research papers, project profiles, personal stories, poems and polemic. The journal particularly welcomes input from service users, and encourages professionals and academics to work with service users to include a user perspective.

As a guide, submissions should not exceed 3000 words in length and should comply with the specifications set out in the author guidelines:

Papers should be submitted by email in MS Word format to the Editor, Adam Pozner at [email protected]. Papers are reviewed by the editors and if suitable for this publication, are then subject to peer review.
