      Why mental health nursing?

      More and more people are being diagnosed with mental health conditions, and the demand for skilled mental health workers is reflected in NHS London’s workforce projections – they will need to train 25% more mental health nurses each year until 2015.

      “What appeals to me about mental health nursing is how interactions can make a huge positive difference on someone’s life,” says Justin McDermott (left), a Middlesex graduate who worked in Psychiatric Intensive Care and is now teaching physical care skills at Middlesex.

      The incidence of dementia is increasing as people live longer, and Middlesex researchers are developing new tools to support care and quality of life – such as a “mockumentary” DVD about the Queen visiting a dementia day centre (left).

      Lecturer Trish Hafford-Letchfield came up with the idea as a way of involving dementia patients in nurse and social worker education - “It helps give voice to patients’ own feelings and shows that carers and people with dementia can have fun together –laughing at themselves and each other.”
