The Bridge

The Bridge is our free online publication presenting the most clinically-relevant research from our two peer reviewed journals: Child and Adolescent Mental Health and The Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, as well as interesting and important studies from the wider literature.

You can download a pdf of each issue of The Bridge from the home page of that particular month. You can also read each individual article in our Research Digests section, each of which also have a downloadable pdf.

The main purpose of The Bridge, and our Research Digests, is knowledge dissemination. They will be of particular interest to postgraduate students, trainees, early career researchers, and those in clinical practice.
We urge you to share The Bridge and Research Digests to your networks. Follow on Twitter @researchdigests
