Mental Health Nurses support and care for individuals whom are experiencing difficulties with their mental health, and are in a critical role to positively impact and influence the outcomes of patients. The programme provides you with the knowledge and understanding of different mental health problems and how these impact the individual, their family and society during their life span. You will benefit from a curriculum that is underpinned by contemporary policy that determines the competencies of the future mental health work force. It has been designed with an emphasis on the importance of physical and mental health in both the assessment and treatment of individuals. During your studies you will examine case studies that have both physical and mental health aspects such as schizophrenia and diabetes or coronary heart disease.
