Unite/Mental Health Nurses Association aim is to provide representation for mental health nurses at all levels - local, regional and national - to ensure that the voice of the profession is heard. As a member of Unite/MHNA, members don't just have access to a trade union or a professional association but both.
As a membership led organisation, the MHNA is professionally led by its members primarily through the MHNA National Organising Professional Committee. This group is made up of representatives from across the Unite regions and countries. The OPC meet on a quarterly basis to lead on the four main agendas of; organising, professional, industrial and campaigns for our MHNA members. MHNA also sees the importance of communicating with the wider membership and this is achieved through the bi-monthly MHN journal which is provided to all MHNA members, via our website and via our Facebook and Twitter pages.
As a member locally, you can become involved in MHNA and the wider Unite in Health by attending local branch meetings, becoming a Unite representative locally, attending the regional health sector training days (which includes the regional MHNA Organising Professional Committee) or in lots of other ways.
