Journal of Clinical Psychiatry

The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry is a peer-reviewed medical journal which focuses on clinical psychiatry, especially depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety, addiction, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, as well as several other mental disorders.
