The focus of this subject is to extend students' ability to engage in advanced mental health nursing practice. This subject has 2 specific foci. Firstly, students will gain knowledge of the relationship between trauma, violence and mental health and ill-health and become familiar with the models of care that focus on recovery and resilience, models of care that enable and empower the clients. Secondly, students will consider mental ill-health from the perspective of 'the lived experience'. Client, family and carers' experiences of mental-ill health will be comprehensively explored and used to enhance the therapeutic alliances and interventions that students have with their clients and their families and carers. 'Lived experiences' will include exploring the impact of diagnosis, medication adherence, stigmas, education, health promotion and prevention and health care service for both clients' families and carers.
