Editorial

I believe it was all-round raconteur Stephen Fry who once said 'Christmas is a time for saying that Christmas is a time for doing things that one should, frankly, be doing anyway. "Christmas is a time for considering people less fortunate than ourselves." Oh, July and August aren't, is that it?' Nevertheless, I hope that you find the time this festive break to read Graham Pluck's thoughtful piece on street children, as a British psychologist living and working in South America (see p.20). And, as ever, how we can help the mentally vulnerable is on the agenda, with John Cromby and Vaughan Bell taking part in our first 'head to head' in aeons on p.34.

Our main aim is to serve as a genuine forum for debate, and we hope that our relaunched website will increase engagement with our readers and beyond. Take a break from the Christmas TV and have a look - there has been lots of exclusive and multimedia content, including chef Heston Blumenthal on his work with psychologists. Just imagine their multisensory festive feast... we hope you enjoy yours.
