Revamped mental health and substance use website for young people

Issue: BCMJ, vol. 60 , No. 9 , November 2018 , Pages 464 News

The BC Children’s Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre has launched a new website so families and health professionals can more easily find mental health and substance use information and resources to support children and youth.

The website, keltymentalhealth.ca, contains information, tools, and services, including evidence-based supports, created by trusted health experts at BC Children’s Hospital. Kelty also launched a new Instagram account (@keltycentre) to complement information already provided through Facebook (www.facebook.com/keltymentalhealth) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/KeltyCentre), connecting followers to the latest resources and information on mental health and substance use via social media.

In addition to the website, the Kelty Centre offers a variety of services so that children, youth, and families can find the help they need, when they need it, as close to their home communities as possible. This includes peer support services from trained young adults and parents with experience in child and youth mental health, through a collaboration with FamilySmart.

Above is the information needed to cite this article in your paper or presentation. The International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) recommends the following citation style, which is the now nearly universally accepted citation style for scientific papers:
Halpern SD, Ubel PA, Caplan AL, Marion DW, Palmer AM, Schiding JK, et al. Solid-organ transplantation in HIV-infected patients. N Engl J Med. 2002;347:284-7.

About the ICMJE and citation styles

The ICMJE is small group of editors of general medical journals who first met informally in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1978 to establish guidelines for the format of manuscripts submitted to their journals. The group became known as the Vancouver Group. Its requirements for manuscripts, including formats for bibliographic references developed by the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), were first published in 1979. The Vancouver Group expanded and evolved into the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), which meets annually. The ICMJE created the Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals to help authors and editors create and distribute accurate, clear, easily accessible reports of biomedical studies.

An alternate version of ICMJE style is to additionally list the month an issue number, but since most journals use continuous pagination, the shorter form provides sufficient information to locate the reference. The NLM now lists all authors.

BCMJ standard citation style is a slight modification of the ICMJE/NLM style, as follows:

  • Only the first three authors are listed, followed by "et al."
  • There is no period after the journal name.
  • Page numbers are not abbreviated.
