Course Summary

The Mental Health research group acknowledges this current climate of policy and practice. Its members apply a multidisciplinary perspective to the investigation of key issues in current health policy and how these impact on the experience of users of mental health services. Current changes in mental health care, mental health policy and mental health nursing have led to a significant shift in the focus of research in the field. Users of mental healthcare services are key players in research and their role continues to evolve. A major review of the role of the mental health nurse has culminated in an innovative and creative vision for the future. We aim to design high quality research to increase the social and personal understanding of mental health, to improve the care and promote the social inclusion of people suffering from mental distress and disorder. Recent graduates have gone on to work for NHS trusts (e.g. clinical specialists, advanced practitioners, modern matrons), universities (e.g. lecturers and senior academics, lecturer practitioners, researchers) and in private practice. The University of Nottingham is consistently named as one of the most targeted universities by Britain's leading graduate employers and can offer students a head-start when it comes to their career.
