The newparadigm Journal Editorial Group is calling for abstracts for the autumn edition of the journal to be released in late April.

The edition will explore innovations and outstanding practice examples that are working towards equality by improving the physical health and wellbeing of people with mental illness.

We welcome contributions from new and established researchers and practitioners, and encourage contributions that demonstrate diverse, integrated and holistic approaches.

The newparadigm journal, published in partnership with Community Mental Health Australia and the peak community mental health organisations across Australia, exists to encourage discussion and information sharing on material relevant to mental health such as innovative service programs, evolving practice approaches, as well as new research and contemporary thinking and evaluation of existing policy and service provision.

  • Submissions are due Wednesday 14th February.
  • Authors will be contacted with final determination about submissions by Wednesday 21st February.
