Cambridge University Press offers free books and journals to mark World Mental Health Day

Close to 200 book chapters and journal articles are being made free to access online as Cambridge University Press marks World Mental Health Day.

The titles, which cover various aspects of mental health and wellbeing, will be available to read free of charge until the end of October.

World Mental Health Day is observed every 10th of October and this year the focus is on suicide prevention. This is reflected in the choice of titles featured in the free collection, including The Neuroscience of Suicidal Behavior, the Cambridge Handbook of Psychology, Health, and Medicine, and The Cambridge Handbook of International Prevention Science.

The author of The Neuroscience of Suicidal Behavior, Professor Kees van Heeringen, said: “Help is available. This is a crucial message in suicide prevention, to the general public, but also to health care and policy makers. Recent research findings show how such help can be effective. Sharing knowledge between the many stakeholders should therefore be central to suicide prevention.”

Journal articles from key publications including CNS Spectrums, Epidemiology and Psychiatric Sciences, and Global Mental Health are also being made available, alongside blog posts from authors and leading experts in the field.
