October 10th is World Mental Health Day and this year’s theme is Make Mental Health and Wellbeing for All – A Global Priority. Everyone, wherever they live in the world deserves early access to compassionate personalised evidence-based mental health care when they seek help.

The IEPA endorsed Early Intervention in Psychiatry Journal has kindly unlocked access to a range of papers on early intervention service development and implementation from around the world. All of these papers will be free to read for 3 months. We hope you enjoy them and they support local efforts to make early intervention in mental health a global priority.
