About the course
As many as one in three people are thought to experience some form of mental health problem. For many, mental illness is brought on by a crisis in life, such as depression after the death of a partner.
Mental health nurses are the largest profession working in mental health today. They make a vital contribution to providing care to service users of all age groups and in all settings. Their key role and challenge is to form therapeutic relationships with people who experience mental health problems, as well as with their families and carers.
Most people who use mental health services are not cared for in hospital but in the community. Mental health nurses might be based in a community health care centre, day hospital and outpatients department or specialist unit. They work as part of a team which includes general practitioners, psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, arts therapists and healthcare assistants.
