New EBMH will be published this week
Evidence-Based Mental Health (EBMH) is a journal which includes key published papers and exclusive expert contributions.
Published four times a year, EBMH is edited by Professor Graham Towl, a Chartered Psychologist and the first psychologist to be appointed editor of this multidisciplinary journal.
This invaluable publication surveys a vast range of international medical journals and selects over 20 vital research articles for every issue.
The key details of these essential studies are presented in a succinct, informative abstract with an expert commentary on its clinical application.
EBMH also includes a recommended reading list of high quality articles that were not included. This ensures that you have a ready-made reading list.
You can find out more about the journal and how Society Members can subscribe to EBMH at a reduced rate on the EMBH webpage.
