Editor's column, June 2020

Jon Sutton introduces the issue.

Thank you for all your messages about our May edition. We had to adapt quickly to remote working, and we changed a lot of the content at the last minute in an attempt to strike the right tone… so your thoughts, and photos of you reading the magazine in lockdown, were much appreciated.

This month, it’s more a case of aiming for ‘business as usual’. We do showcase the Society’s response to coronavirus (see p.2), and you can find dozens of perspectives on our website. But mainly we’re content to get a ‘standard’ issue out, while we also work hard on a special July/August edition which will look ‘towards the new normal, and beyond’. We recently hosted a webinar on that topic, which you can watch at tinyurl.com/BPSnewnormal: keep up with all our news/events by following us on Twitter @psychmag.

Also looking to the future and a ‘compelling vision’ is Dr Hazel McLaughlin, who begins her stint as Society President soon. Meet her on p.8.
