Event Description

The International Mental Health Nursing Research Conference is the Network for Psychiatric Nursing Research Conference re-imagined and reinvented. The themes for our twenty-third meeting reflect our change of identity and we look forward to celebrating the evidence, creativity and innovation which characterise our field, and a healthy, critical disposition to the context in which this is enacted. We therefore invite all those who share our concern to better understand and improve mental health care, treatment and services to join us this coming autumn for two days of collegial inquiry, discussion and debate in the capital city of Wales.

We meet at a time of challenge and change. More than ever, those who work in, lead and research mental health services need inquiring minds, ready access to knowledge, and strong collaborations to get things done. Working to promote mental health and to prevent mental illness demands imagination, innovation and partnership. With resources scarce, meeting the needs of people living with mental health difficulties places a premium on creativity, resourcefulness and invention.

The MHNR conference will continue the NPNR’s tradition of being a welcoming, friendly, place for speakers and delegates. This includes for those presenting for the first time. Our conference will remain the premier place for mental health nurses, and the people we work with, to spend time together talking, listening and learning.

Links between mental health academics and student support services

Posted by Jill Anderson on July 21, 2017 at 13:00 0 Comments

Are there close links, in your institution, between people involvement in teaching/learning about mental distress on the one hand, and student support services on the other?  

Do you think such connections are important and, if so, why?

I've recently been involved in a number of discussions about this question and would really value any thoughts.  Please use the comments box or contact me.  Many thanks.
