Mental health problems in childhood and adolescence are increasingly the object of preferential study by Spanish professionals. Sensitivity towards cases of child abuse both within the domestic and institutional sphere has grown enormously and has produced a preferential attention towards the associated mental disorders and their consequences, such as suicidal behavior. At present, this issue has become even more complex by the increasing presence of young immigrants, with diverse sociocultural backgrounds that represent a new challenge for the mental health professionals. The aim of these four articles is to advance in the prediction of suicidal behavior in children and adolescents and in the approach of disorders associated with domestic violence and the acculturation of immigrant youths.

The Spanish Journal of Psychology is published with the aim of promoting the international dissemination of relevant empirical research and theoretical and methodological proposals in the various areas of specialization within psychology. The Journal is honoring Mental Illness Awareness Week and World Mental Health Day by offering free access to recently published articles in mental health and wellbeing.
