    We are mental health nursing. We are the NHS

    People with lived experience of mental health describe the “huge impact” that great mental health care has had on their recovery and their lives. While mental health nurses explain why they feel there’s “…no greater gift than supporting someone and seeing them prosper and flourish.” Providing mental health care is vital and we need our mental health workforce now more than ever. The mental health sector is rapidly expanding and we are looking for more dedicated and talented people to join our ranks. There has never been a better time to join the sector.
