|Field of Study:||Psychiatric/Mental Health Nurse/Nursing
|Description:||Mental health conditions are a lot more prevalent than many people realise, however both mental health conditions and mental health nursing are often poorly understood. We hope the information on these pages will help you to think about a mental health nursing career and whether it's the profession for you. It's a challenging but rewarding profession and different from what you may think, and we warmly welcome applications from well-qualified candidates.
Your main skill as a mental health nurse is your ability to connect to other people and to help them to improve their overall wellbeing. The therapeutic relationships that you make with the people you support, and their families and friends are critical to helping people manage their experience of mental ill health and the stigma which can accompany it. Choosing to become a mental health nurse is rewarding - it is also complex and challenging. As a career, mental health nursing is meaningful, interesting, flexible and varied and at its heart, it is about supporting people experiencing mental distress to recover and live the best lives possible.
