Why is an academic journal important?
of graduate and continuing education programs for mental health
professionals requires instructors/presenters to reference recent
literature that has been published in a peer-reviewed format such as a
scholarly journal. Academic professionals, clinicians and students can
likewise grow their career and contribute to the formation of fellow and
future mental health professionals by submitting and reviewing work to
be published in this journal. Thus, formation and publication of this
journal is essential to the present and future existence and
availability of solid Catholic mental health services.
