clinicians of highly relevant developments in the field of mental
health and provides instant access to high quality evidence.
It informs of important advances in treatment, diagnosis,

Articles for EBMH are formed from the selection of the best
studies from over 50 leading international medical journals.

validity of the original research in order to extract the most
clinically relevant and scientifically valid papers available. The
key details of each chosen study are then presented in a succinct,
informative abstract with an expert commentary on its clinical
application added to each one.
By adopting a multi-disciplinary
approach to mental health and linking clinical research to

practitioners worldwide. It covers studies of adults, children,
older adults, people who have developed psychiatric or
