Transition Magazine

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

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

We solicit original, unpublished articles, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, book reviews, and visual art (black and white) that represent current mental health issues in our province and reflect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