There’s more to being a mental health nurse than you might think!
Here we see acting ward manager, Kestrel Ward, Thomas Smith, Acting Charge Nurse, Tinoziva Tembo and staff nurse, Nomatter Manzira-Charlton in the music room getting to make a noise for #MHNursesDay
Mental Health Nurse Day 2021 happens on February 21 this year and is an opportunity to shout about the profession and tell people a little more about what the job involves.
As Thomas explains: “Mental health still comes with a lot of stigma, and yet statistics show that a large proportion of our society will at some point suffer with mental health issues. Why not raise the profile and raise awareness?
“It’s a career worth taking, it’s life changing for you and for your patients.”
