Welcome back to ‘The Bridge’, it is an honour to take over from Dr Mark Lovell as Editor. Mark has worked very hard for many years to produce The Bridge, and ACAMH would like to say a big thank you for all his efforts.
ACAMH produce 2 scholarly journals, but as a clinician at the coalface I know how hard it is to commit to reading research articles regularly. The Bridge is intended to be a short publication for a multidisciplinary and multiagency audience, it is edited but not peer reviewed. Full access to all of the articles in The Bridge are only available to members, but every so often we will publish an article for all to read. But, we hope you become an ACAMH Member to get the full benefits.
Its aim is to support the translation of research articles in JCPP and CAMH and other leading peer reviewed journals each month, into the clinical practice of clinicians. To help to disseminate the evidence base. There will also be interviews, features and postcards from branches and from abroad.
I do hope you find this edition a helpful update. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of what you’d like to see in future issues. A pdf of this Bridge issue is available to download. Please feel free to share this with colleagues, together with the direct links to the articles below.
