The Pivotal Role of Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurses

Expanding Mental Health Care Services in America: The Pivotal Role of Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurses

In a new report, APNA warns that the current shortage of qualified mental health and substance use disorder professionals presents a growing threat to Americans' well-being.

#MentalHealthNursesCanHelp. PMH nurses have the training, skills, and compassion needed to fill the gaps in our nation's healthcare system. PMH nurses are the fastest growing non-physician specialties in health care, and as the field expands, these nurses can help increase access to mental health care to promote a healthier nation.
