How should we care for people with mental health issues? What’s the impact of substance misuse? Why is family-centred care important? At King’s College London, we’ll help you answer these big questions and teach you how to help people during the most challenging times of their lives. As a mental health nurse, you need to be prepared for fast-paced, challenging situations.
