Transition Magazine

TRANSITION is a truly unique publication, published twice annually by the Saskatchewan Division of Canadian Mental Health Association. A subscription to TRANSITION is available by purchasing an annual CMHA Sask membership for $15.

TRANSITION is a magazine which publishes two kinds of works: those directly about mental health issues; and those about the individual’s personal experience of those same issues. Both kinds of works celebrate lives in transit – lives of change, growth, and transformation.

We solicit original, unpublished articles, as well as fiction, non-fiction, poetry, book reviews, and visual art (black and white) that represent current mental health issues in our province and reflect on their impact on individualsTRANSITION encourages emerging writers and artists of all kinds to submit their work for publication.

There are no deadlines for submissions as Transition Magazine accepts submissions continuously.
