Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue aims to explore the association between mental health and emotional well-being, with a focus on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other mental disorders in school settings. Prospective submissions to this special issue are expected to investigate various factors influencing the manifestations of ADHD and other mental disorders, as well as the positive psychology-based strategies used to manage these conditions in the school settings. The main objective of this special issue is to showcase the novel evidence-based interventions and innovative approaches tailored to support students with ADHD and other mental disorders, including school intervention programs, targeted counseling initiatives, and individualized educational plans, which are believed to confer protective effects on the values and habits of affected individuals. Additionally, the interventional effects of these approaches on mental health and emotional well-being in schools represent an important subtopic of this special issue.

We cordially welcome submission contributions from authors working across the relevant fields, such as psychiatry, psychology, education, and social work. This special issue will consider letters, systematic reviews, reviews, case studies, and original research studies, providing an essential resource for educators, mental health professionals, and policymakers committed to creating supportive school climates and improving outcomes for students with ADHD and other mental disorders.
