Mental Health Nursing Journal

MHN journal Apr May 2013Mental Health Nursing (MHN) is the official journal of the MHNA. The Editorial Board of MHN exists to provide expert professional advice to the Journal’s Editor and publishers. It is a subgroup of the Unite/MHNA National Professional Committee NPC.

The content of MHN consists of a balance between clinical and practice issues, education, research and audit, service user and carer issues along with UK wide policy and service delivery. Its purpose is to reflect current and prospective future issues for mental health nurses and to promote the widest possible discussion amongst MHNA members.

Membership of the Board is made up of up to 12 lay members, the Editor, a member from the Unite Professional Officers team, a representative from the publishers, and one service user or carer. Of the 12 lay members, the NPC provides a representative to sit on the Board and one place will be held for a student mental health nurse (and MHNA member) representative.  The full terms of reference of the board can be viewed here.

The Mental Health Nursing Journal editor can be contacted  or  07717 438101.
