I am currently on the journey of becoming a nurse, hopefully, a mental health nurse, In Scotland.

But have been made aware that there are very few places made available to students for you to be able to train as a mental health nurse. 

Now you only have to turn the tv on or read the newspapers to be told our mental health and the up and coming's generations mental health needs improvement, so why are the government who decides who we train in universities not investing in our futures. 

Only 12% according to the NHS website in the UK are mental health nurses.

Only 16% are mental health nurses in Scotland.

Surely we should be making this figure bigger as Mental health relates to so many of us and our families. According to BBC Scotland 1 in 3 people are affected by mental health issues.

The issues as we become more aware and more openly speak of these things are rising so why is there not more being put into training, get behind us and help our population, become more mindful. Let's get the government to sit up and listen and show we need a change. 

So what's this all about... we need more university places made available to get more people to train as Mental Health nurses. 

 

LETS TALK ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH.....
