Forensic Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health

Five years ago, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health (CAPMH) published a thematic series on "Forensic child and adolescent psychiatry and mental health in Europe", in partnership with the European Association for Forensic Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (EFCAP). In the intervening years, EFCAP has continued to emphasise the medical and educational needs of young people in the justice system, and has published a wealth of research on this topic.

Recently, EFCAP members voted to make CAPMH the official journal of the society, and to publish thematic series in the journal on an annual basis. We are delighted to present the first of these below, consisting of an introduction by Klaus Schmeck, Liaison Editor Cyril Boonmann and Jörg Fegert, and five research articles. These articles span a diverse range of topics, and will be of interest to mental health professionals and policy makers worldwide.
