Special Issue - Mental Health in Therapeutic Recreation


For this special issue, we particularly invite manuscripts with a focus on:

  • TR services and supports provided in community-oriented settings, with a specific focus on mental health promotion or risk prevention
  • TR services and/or supports (with a mental health lens) to vulnerable or marginalized populations living in the community or who may live (and receive care/support) outside medical health care systems (e.g., persons who are homeless, living alone, experiencing chronic stress, PTSD, addictions, experiencing disruptive life transitions, children and youth in school or community contexts, etc.)
  • Innovative interventions that involve TR practitioners in collaboration with peer supporters/advocates
  • Collaborative/interdisciplinary models of practice

We also welcome case studies (of work with an individual, group, or community) including first voice perspectives on their participation in TR services.
