The aim is to keep mental health clinicians up-to-date by systematically searching primary journals as they appear and publishing value added abstract of those that are both reliable and clinically important.
The website contains a wide range of links and resources to assist evidence-based practice in mental health.
This website contains a full listing of the contents of Evidence-Based Mental Health and will shortly contain a searchable database of the full-text abstracts and notebooks.
