This is a special issue of Mental Health Update celebrating the mental health related publications of staff from St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne. Mental health has such a strong overlap with other areas of health that the line here is not drawn tightly. St Vincent's staff from Mental Health, Addiction Medicine, NEXUS Dual Diagnosis and a number of other departments are included - even the Library :)
Full text access: Many of these resources are freely accessible, but articles marked with an asterisk* require an SVHM login for offsite access. Articles marked ** link to the abstract only. Readers from other organisations are welcome, but please note that some links will not work for you, and this library can only supply subscription based full text resources to SVHM staff and students.
Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org to subscribe, ask a question, let me know about a publication I have missed (oops) or request an Endnote library of citations (SVHM staff only).
