Editorial: CAMH – meeting the changing mental health needs of children in the 21st century

Jane Barlow


This is a challenging time for all journals but particularly for those such as CAMH, which must achieve a balance between informing, influencing and transforming the quality and effectiveness of the mental healthcare available to children, young people, their parents and families, while endeavouring to publish high-quality scientific papers in terms of indicators such as the impact factor (IF). It is also a challenging time more widely in terms of the changing mental health needs of children, and the ability of CAMH services to meet them. This editorial discusses a number of changes that will be made the CAMH journal in 2017 to address these issues.
