Course summary

As a society, we generally find it much easier to talk about being physically unwell than about mental ill health. Mental illness requires just as much care as physical illness – sometimes even more so. Being a mental health nurse means you'll be crucial in helping people get their lives back on track.**Why study this subject?**Whether you have a personal experience with people with mental illness or simply want to help those who struggle day-to-day, you can apply to be a mental health nurse. You will help people get through their illness, whether it is anxiety, depression, psychotic disturbances, paranoia, dementia or other disorders affecting older people.What makes mental health nursing such a challenge is the sheer diversity of situations you will have to respond to, no two days ever being the same.
