It is the mission of the APNA RN-PMH Council to identify issues, gather pertinent information to better understand these issues, and develop recommendations to the Board of Directors on projects or positions that APNA should undertake.

Implement the processes and procedures necessary to carry out the role, mission and vision of the Council
Establish Council project priorities based on the survey of psychiatric nurses conducted earlier this year
Establish a Steering Committee to organize and facilitate the work necessary to address targeted priorities
Establish Working Committees and identify Expert Panel members, as necessary, to work on specific priorities
Work collaboratively with the other APNA Councils and as part of the Inner Council Task Force to represent the RN-PMH
Identify and submit RN-PMH Council Members for consideration and membership on the APNA Rapid Response Team
