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We solicit original, unpublished articles, as well as fiction, non-fiction, poetry, book reviews, and visual art (black and white) that represent current mental health issues in our province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 individuals. TRANSITION encourages emerging writers and artists of all kinds to submit their work for publication.
CMHA Sask. Div. has received many entries for our Transition Magazine, and normally, we publish two editions every year, one spring and one fall. However, with the recent resignation of our long-time editor, Ted Dyck, we are taking the opportunity to look at Transition Magazine to determine the best way to continue offering this great bi-annual publication. With that said, we will not be producing the Fall/Winter edition of Transition, but we hope to have an issue for Spring/Summer 2023. We thank you for your patience as we go through this process and want to ensure everyone who’s taken part in Transition over the years that we will continue with this magazine. Thank you all for your submissions, and please continue with your writing. We will be back soon and expect to have an even better product to share when we do!
