Microsite Offers Content on Mental Health Awareness

May 14, 2018 1746

In the latest of its monthly series of interdisciplinary microsites addressing important public issues, SAGE Publishing today is offering free access to academic articles that support Mental Health Awareness Week. The week, sponsored by Britain’s Mental Health Foundation, this year is focused on stress (“Are we coping?”), which the collection covers along with the causes, diagnosis, experiences and treatment of mental illness, are the content areas represented in the collection.

The need for the best possible awareness of mental health is increasingly evident. For example, an estimated 300 million people worldwide were living with depression last year.

The microsite is intended as a hub for research published on mental health across all a wide variety of social science, science, technology and medical subjects. The material, numbering dozens of journal articles, draws from SAGE’s extensive stable of academic journals spanning pertinent areas, such as the Journal of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association, Health Psychology Open or the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine. One goal of this and other SAGE microsites is to examine the entire spectrum of research on area of public interest – note, not in a specific discipline – to help researchers pursue knowledge outside of their usual silos.

Some of the specific high-profile or innovative pieces in the new collection include Jessica Houston Su’s “Unintended Birth and Children’s Long-term Mental Health;” “A Large-Scale Test of the Goldilocks Hypothesis” by Andrew K. Przybylski and Netta Weinstein; and Mohammed Al-Mosaiwi and Tom Johnstone’s “In an Absolute State: Elevated Use of Absolutist Words Is a Marker Specific to Anxiety, Depression, and Suicidal Ideation” from Clinical Psychological Science.

The microsite includes links to SAGE-published books and special issues on mental health issues, such as the recent issue on arts, health and wellbeing from Perspectives in Public Health.

SAGE will continue to roll out new microsites every month. Future issues to be covered include women’s right and gender equality, big data, and the patient experience.
