Editorial Statement

Advances in School Mental Health Promotion is a new journal that aims to promote global dialogue, collaboration and action toward the advancement of training, practice, research and policy in school mental health promotion. It will publish articles that stimulate progress in each of these realms, recognising the interconnections between them. The emphasis is therefore on studies that reflect a shared agenda, with schools, youth and families, mental health and other child serving systems collaborating toward the improvement and expansion of school mental health promotion initiatives.

Reflecting the full continuum of school mental health promotion, the journal will cover: efforts to assess and improve school environments; school-wide social and emotional learning; mental health promotion, and youth development; prevention; early identification and intervention; intervention for youth in general and special education.

Advances in School Mental Health Promotion emphasises the connections between: high quality and empirically supported school mental health promotion efforts; outcomes valued by families, schools and community members; policy development and advocacy - all working together and gaining strength to enable growing numbers of schools and community initiatives to remove barriers to student learning and promote their school and life success.
