Emerald Group Publishing would like to share with you a short paper that examines the current state of play for UK trauma informed mental health services: ‘Despite the evidence - why are we still not creating more trauma informed mental health services

This short policy analysis, published in the Journal of Public Mental Health, outlines research evidence which highlights traumatic exposure as an important antecedent to a range of mental health issues. The paper argues that although some knowledge in this area has been changed into policy within the UK, its implementation remains “patchy”. A clinical pathway which would include trauma assessment and treatment is provided for readers.

The article is free of charge for you until Thursday 5th April 2012

The Journal of Public Mental Health is published quarterly and focuses on the research, policy and practice that put mental well-being at the heart of the public health agenda. The journal aims to develop the theory underpinning public mental health, and expand our knowledge of best practice mental health promotion.
