Call for Manuscripts: Exploring Solutions to Combat Loneliness, Isolation, and Mental Health Challenges
In the face of the recent Surgeon General Advisory, which highlights the public health crisis of loneliness, isolation, and disconnection in the United States, and alarming data revealing the mental health struggles of America’s children, it is clear that our society is grappling with significant mental health issues. These challenges have been amplified by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and a host of other global crises, including natural and man-made disasters, social injustices, political strife, and a general decline in collective mental wellness.
As we recognize May as Mental Health Awareness Month, we are reminded of the urgency to address these concerns, particularly those affecting our youth. A recent survey from Nemours KidsHealth revealed that a staggering 86% of school-aged children report worrying at least some of the time. Concerns range from academic pressures to social anxieties and fears about safety and global violence.
In response to these pressing issues, GCSCORED, Inc., publisher of the Journal of Global Engagement and Transformation (JGET), invites practitioners and scholars to contribute to our understanding and potential solutions to these mental health crises. We are seeking manuscripts that present effective practices, interventions, or theoretical frameworks relevant to these challenges.
Your work could provide invaluable insights and strategies for improving individual and societal mental health in the midst of our current global condition. If you are eager to share your knowledge and contribute to a more mentally resilient future, we encourage you to submit your manuscript.
The deadline for submissions is December 31, 2023. Accepted articles will be published in the Spring/Summer 2024 issue of JGET. Please submit manuscripts to email@example.com.
