MHNAUK has today, March 31st 2020, published a statement on mental health care, education and research during the coronavirus outbreak. The statement has three purposes:
- to assert the principle that mental health matters during the coronavirus crisis;
- to recognise and applaud the contribution that nurses and others working in the mental health field are making during this time, and will continue to make into the foreseeable future;
- to acknowledge the impact of the current crisis on mental health nursing students and educators, and on the conduct of mental health nursing and related research.
