Quick Overview
Mental health nurses work with people suffering from various mental health conditions and also with their caregivers. The work involves in helping the patients in not only recovering from their illness, but also come to terms in order to lead a positive life. They often work in multidisciplinary teams, liaising with psychiatrists, psychologists, occupational therapists, social workers and other health professionals. As a mental health nurse, he/she is required to deal with acute and chronic patients in a variety of settings which may range from community healthcare centers to hospital outpatient and inpatient departments. In order to play his/her varied role in an effective manner, it is imperative that the mental health nurse is both knowledgeable and competent. Towards achieving this end, the nurse is required to gain expertise in both theoretical and clinical areas. Students are submitting their assignments in loose sheets and later collating them, thus, giving a muddled appearance. Finally, the nursing students do not have any standard formats to look to, resulting in compiling the information in a haphazard manner and also omitting the basic information in certain instances. This practical record book has been designed with a basic idea to redress such issues.
