Mental Health Nursing

The mental health nursing specialisation provides a deep understanding of the philosophy and theory underpinning mental health nursing, its values and the requisite skills to maintain clinical relationships and assist in person-centred mental health care that aids recovery. Through completion of elective units that include psychoanalytic and developmental theory, mental health of the elderly, psychopharmacology and physical treatments, transcultural mental health, forensic mental health and family violence, the mental health nurse will be equipped to provide competent clinical care in a range of mental health settings.
