WFOT Bulletin Vol 76 Issue 2 Call for papers

Feature Issue on Mental Health

Around 1-in-7 people globally (11-18 percent) have one or more mental or substance use disorders. In recent years, mental health policy has been undergoing radical change around the world in line with international guidelines, such as the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNDESA 2006) and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UNDP 2015). In order to work towards achieving the targets set out in these documents, many countries are updating their mental health legislation providing opportunities for occupational therapists.

Manuscripts of approximately 4500 words and case studies of approximately 1500 words are invited to address these ongoing developments. See guidelines for authors at www.wfot.org/bulletin
