Writers' Guidelines
For Mental Health World Contributors

          Mental Health World is an open forum for recipients and providers of mental health services, family members, agency members, policy makers and government officials involved in the pursuit of mental health. We publish first-hand accounts on what helps and what hinders recovery from mental illnesses; what works, what doesn't work within traditional systems of care, within alternative systems of care. There can never be too much information about illnesses that affect so many, for which so many are still mistreated and misunderstood.

    1. Please double-space articles. If they are not typed, please be sure we can read them.

    2. Please include your name, address, phone number and a brief biography telling readers what you want them to know about you.

    3. Articles are to be a maximum of four (4) double-spaced pages. Occasionally, five pages may be able to be accommodated. Computer submissions on disk are welcomed.

    4. To avoid the possibility of libel suits, we do not print names of people and/or facilities cited for malpractice: it is the truth of personal experiences that impacts on readers.

    5. We retain the right to edit all contributions volunteered for publication and publish articles for additional education purposes.

    6. Pen names and “Anonymous” are acceptable.

    7. Submission is not a guarantee of publication, but every effort will be made to include your work in future editions.

    Email your contributions to mhw@buffnet.net after you have subscribed.
