Mental Health Nurse
Students entering nursing are beginning a career opportunity in an ever developing area of healthcare. As the population's healthcare needs change, nurses must be ready to respond. These changes may be determined by government led initiatives, changing patterns of health and illness and advances in practice resulting from research. Nurses work within an inter-professional framework, liaising with other professionals to provide the best possible care for patients and clients.
One in four of us will experience a mental health problem in our lifetime, and mental health nurses play a vital role in the management and recovery of those needing care. Along with general skills of communication, mental health nurses also develop specialist skills required when working with vulnerable groups, such as how to interact with people hearing voices, and working with children and young people with mental health issues. The unique nature of mental health nursing also poses significant legal and ethical responsibilities which are not to be found in other areas of healthcare.
A mental health nurse also helps to meet the needs of mental health clients/users and their carers in both community and in-patient care settings.
