Child and adolescent mental health during the Covid-19 pandemic: call-for-papers
The Covid-19 pandemic is profoundly impacting our lives. Therefore, we are proud to present this year’s thematic series “Child and adolescent mental health during the Covid-19 pandemic”. We are seeking high quality papers on the impact of the current pandemic on child mental health and how the mental health systems are adapting to the situation. Given the acute and rapidly changing nature of the pandemic, we are committed to providing a rapid editorial decision. For more information see the call-for-papers and the editorial. Additionally, we are happy to announce that limited financial support is available for this thematic series and we encourage authors to contact the CAPMH editorial office (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further details upon acceptance.
Featured series: Forensic Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health 2018/2019
We are proud to present this years’ thematic series “Forensic Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health 2018/2019”.

COVID-19 and impact on peer review
As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
Aims and scope
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.
