Like the rest of the world, we are watching the war in Ukraine with horror and condemn the invasion in the strongest possible terms. We are thinking of and support the Ukrainian people – those who are engaged in armed conflict and those who are displaced from their homes and country. We also stand in support of our service members, their families and those of our NATO allies who face the stressors of deployment and the anticipation of conflict. Now is the time to remember and refresh our mental health skills to help those who are victims and responders and their families.

Internationally recognized for its scope and imagination for over six decades, Psychiatry has been restructured in response to rapid research advances in psychiatry, psychology, neuroscience, group and family processes, and other disciplines that investigate mental health. Increasingly, studies in these areas are being placed in the context of human development across the lifespan, and linked to carefully examined variations in the social ecology of human life. This journal is an essential resource for researchers, clinicians and trainees seeking broadly applicable and effective solutions to the major unsolved problems in the field.
