Overview

In the contemporary world, we are seeing a marked increase in the prevalence in mental illness. The level and stigma of mental illness in youth and in disadvantaged populations complicates efforts for prevention and adequate treatment.

With heightened patient relationships, mental health nurses are in a distinctive position to provide first-hand insight to the specifics of treatment. While balancing boundaries in health promotion, nurses need to provide guidance and ideally work to empower patients in their own healing and advocacy.

Advances in Contemporary Mental Health Nursing (2nd edn) addresses this need, building the literature on mental health nursing issues today. It is a call to nurses to bring their innovation and imagination to help creatively construct partnership models that include mental health professionals, patients, family members, and the public.

An invaluable reader for nurses and other mental health professionals and contains a rich menu of topics to inform mental health workers.

Some highlights from this issue include:

  • Innovation and a partnership future for mental health nursing
  • Transcultural mental health nursing
  • Therapeutic friendliness in community rehabilitation settings
  • Solution focused nursing: A fitting model for mental health nurses working in a public health paradigm
  • Self-esteem and optimism in rural youth: Gender differences
  • Paternal postpartum depression
  • Exploring the mental health nurse practitioner scope of practice (Youth Early Psychosis)
  • Informed consent for research involving people with dementia: A grey area
  • Cultural boundary surfing in mental health nursing

As increased awareness and understanding of mental illness can also lead to implementation of policy changes and increased prevention and treatment options, this special issue is vital reading for mental health professionals and academics, and all those involved in policymaking and innovation in the field of mental health care.
