International Year of the Nurse and Midwife

YoNMMarking the 200 years which have passed since the birth of Florence Nightingale, the World Health Organization (WHO) has designated 2020 as the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife.

Mental health nurses, including members of MHNAUK, will be using the WHO’s initiative to both take and make opportunities to talk about what they do, and to say why their work is important. Already-confirmed dates for mental health nurses to showcase their contributions include Mental Health Nurses’ Day on 21st February 2020, and a one-day International Mental Health Nursing Research Conference to take place on 11th June 2020 at Middlesex University.
