Free Mental Health Supplement

Mental health nurses provide front line support to people with mental health issues.

Mental health is one of the most complex and demanding areas of nursing. A fundamental part of the role of the mental health nurse is to form a therapeutic relationship with the mental health patient, and their family.

It is therefore vital to have a good understanding of the theories of mental health and illness, and to be assisted with the most up to date information and research in order to aid recovery and promote independent living skills.
