HELPLINE - 072 7900 506

We take time to appreciate the role our mental health nurses play in modern healthcare. Our nurses work in specialised mental health facilities and focus on treating patients with mental health conditions like depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety. They have specialised training in administering psychiatric medications, crisis intervention, and behaviour management techniques.

Here are just a few reasons we value the nurses in our mental health hospitals:

1. They have expertise in mental healthcare

Our nurses are trained to provide specialised care for patients with mental health issues. They have the expertise to recognise and manage mental health symptoms and behaviours.

2. They promote positive mental health

Our nurses can assess an individual’s mental health status and provide ongoing support, education and resources to promote overall mental health.

3. They manage medication

Our nurses can monitor, manage and administer medication safely, working closely with the prescribing doctor.

4. They assist in therapy 

Psychiatric nurses can assist with counselling and other psychotherapeutic interventions as ordered by the psychiatrist or therapist.

5. They give support and guidance

Our nurses can support and guide patients and their families, helping them better understand mental illness and ways to cope with symptoms.

6. They keep patients safe

Our nurses understand the risks and hazards of treating patients with mental health conditions. They can maintain the safety of the patient and those around them.

7. They follow a multidisciplinary approach

Our nurses work with a multidisciplinary team that includes psychiatrists, social workers, occupational therapists, etc., helping to develop comprehensive patient care plans.

8. They can intervene in a crisis

Our nurses are trained to recognise when a patient is in crisis and can quickly intervene to stabilise the patient and prevent self-harm or harm to others.

9. They advocate for patients’ rights

Our nurses can advocate for their patients, ensuring they receive the care and support they need to manage their mental health and live healthy lives.

10. They promote recovery

Our nurses can help patients to work toward recovery, setting goals and establishing a plan to manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
