Mental illness is present in many people’s everyday life and affects at least one in four people in the UK alone. Mental health nurses are there to help patients through their mental illnesses and provide them with support to aid this recovery.

Those students wishing to become mental health nurses must undertake a mental health nursing degree. Most mental health nursing degrees are undergraduate courses and last for around three years of full time study. In some cases, universities will offer nursing graduates the option to study a one year postgraduate degree in mental health nursing, to allow students to specialise in one area of nursing.

Most mental health nursing degrees will be structured so that half of the students’ time is spent at the university learning, and the other half is spent on a working placement. Throughout the course, students will study a range of key concepts such as foundations of nursing, public health, team working, and quality improvement and health sciences.
