This Special Issue will consider problematic (alcohol) use with an emphasis on alcohol consumption and mental health through the course of life. Currently, there are a number of proposed papers. These include a systematic review of the link between perinatal mental health and personality disorders, a review of international literature concerning home drinking in adult populations, and two papers relating to older drinkers. One of these papers is a systematic review concerning problematic substance use and older people, and the other looks at the context of drinking among older people. This includes consuming alcohol at home, with meals, and in pubs, bars and restaurants. We aim to include papers concerning the link between problematic substance (alcohol) use and mental health with regard to gender differences, different ethnic groupings, young people/adolescents, and other special populations.
