Featured series: Non-suicidal self-injury: a condition for further study
In collaboration with the 10th annual meeting of the International Society for the Study of Self Injury (ISSS), Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health has published a special issue; New insights in non-suicidal self-injury. This special series, published in two instalments, presents a plethora of in–depth studies on different aspects of NSSI, including functions of NSSI, diagnostic issues and NSSI in special populations, as well as outcomes and cessation patterns. Highlights from the first instalment include Janis Whitlock and colleagues demonstrating that NSSI cessation is associated with a variety of factors across several psychosocial domains, and Megan Pumpa and Graham Martin examining the influence of negative attitudes on self-injurers seeking professional help.

About the Editor
Joerg Michael Fegert, Prof. Dr. med. habil., is Medical Director of the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry/Psychotherapy at the University Hospital of Ulm/Germany. He is a board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrist and psychotherapist and a board-certified specialist for medical psychotherapy in adults.
Central to our work in child and adolescent psychiatry are encounters with and between people for developmental advancement: in daily work with families, on scientific congresses, in teaching and research. Still there are fears or prejudices against psychiatry to some extent. Hence, we aim to inform the public and the media transparently about our work and developments in our subject. In research we try to find new ways of treatment and to give empirical support for what we are doing. CAPMH gives the opportunity to do both: coming together with scientists all over the world and across different cultures and informing about latest results in research.
