states that ‘many recommendations depend heavily on the staff who work within our services’ - yet Mental Health Nurses as the single largest professional group get little more than a passing mention... untapped potential = untapped opportunities

I agree that an absence of - it could equally apply to the inclusion of a service user network - the mindset of the Mental Health Policy Group re inclusion and collaborative care is of concern

Sure it’s not deliberate, but we do need to continue to reflect on why the largest profession in the mental health workforce seems to be out of the loop in so many areas of mental health development - something and is determined to address.

Thank you Julie. That’s what was niggling away for me. We tend to be more open to ideas and less defensive and have long valued genuine collaboration with many people and perspectives.

It would be a shame to have to sign up to a statement like this. I think it goes without saying that mhns hold a wide range of perspectives. We can only support people effectively by valuing others’ views. This is demonstrated in the diverse approaches used in mhn rsch.

I’m in favour of respectful discussion and for more light, less heat. Though nurses haven’t been at the sharp end of recent polarised debates, members of our profession have different positions and we definitely have parts to play in realising the principles in the statement.

I don’t know what others think but this joint statement emerged after arguments between (some) psychologists and psychiatrists. Mental health nurses were not involved. The statement is fine but not particularly ground-breaking. Not sure we need to be involved. What do you think?

Isn't it better to change toxic work environments than provide a first level intervention? It's like saying it doesn't matter if the work canteen is filthy or there's an electrocution risk or dodgy stairs because Tina's been trained in first aid.
