Prerequisites: Nil
Teaching Organisation: Nil

There is an increasing prevalence of mental health issues in society: it is crucial that Registered Nurses understand a range of frameworks and care to ensure that individuals are supported in their recovery journey. The unit will enable students to learn from individual, carer and family lived experience of mental health issues in order to provide interventions that support the individual with mental health issues they care for in future practice.

The role of the Registered Nurse will be considered across a variety of mental health settings and include considerations across the lifespan, legal and ethical issues, the impact of comorbid conditions and vulnerability for individuals who experience a mental health illness.

This aim of this unit is to support students to develop knowledge and skills in relation to evidence-based practices which enable safe and effective care for persons experiencing mental health issues.
