Current JSNMA Issue

We, the Publications Committee, are thrilled to present our Spring 2015-2016 issue of the JSNMA – Mental Health in the Professional World. Discussing mental health among colleagues in professional settings is often considered taboo, despite its heightened prevalence. The theme of this issue focuses on bringing awareness to the importance of starting the conversation about mental health in the professional world and highlighting the many positive implications this line of conversation holds. Through creative works, innovative research, and thoughtful commentary, our authors explore the navigation of mental health in the professional world and assert their opinions on the theme.

We hope that you thoroughly enjoy the work of your talented colleagues in this spring issue of the JSNMA! May you be inspired to openly and honestly address mental health in the professional world and inspire others to do the same. If journalism peaks your interest, consider becoming a member of the 2016-2017 Publications Committee and/or becoming a future JSNMA contributor! In addition to the grand opportunity to be published in the JSNMA, being apart of the Publications Committee offers many great opportunities for professional networking, writing development, creativity, and much more.
