This Framework sets out the priorities for mental health nurses over the next five years. It has equal relevance to mental health nurses in the statutory, independent, or voluntary sectors and within education and is also intended to provide impetus and direction for the development of an effective, competent high quality health care support workforce. The Framework provides focus and direction on how local mental health nurses working in practice, education, management and/or research, can best contribute to the care of service users in the future.
