Mental Health Nurses support and care for individuals experiencing mental ill health and play a crucial role in positively impacting and influencing the outcomes of their service users. Person- centred care is at the heart of our programme, which acknowledges that all people are individuals with physical, emotional, social, and cultural needs. Severe and enduring mental illness can adversely affect someone’s physical health, so health promotion and education will be key aspects of your role as a mental health nurse. Our Mental Health Nursing programme aims to produce nurses who are self-aware, reflective and are a positive role model for the people in their care, displaying resilience and compassion. You will apply your skills, identifying opportunities to educate and support people at every stage of their lives. Underpinning this will be early intervention in children and young people’s mental health, recognising the impact of adverse childhood experiences on mental health across the lifespan. It is also recognised that by 2025, over a million people in the UK will be diagnosed with dementia (Alzheimer’s’ Society 2019) and mental health nurses will be pivotal in prevention, early identification, assessment, and intervention for cognitive impairment.
