Moving forward on mental health and substance abuse: The time is now!
Regardless of your practice setting, if you’re a registered nurse, this webinar will be useful for providing support and care to persons with mental illness and substance use problems. Watch a recorded version of this 2012 session to hear national experts address the following critical questions:
- What do RNs need to know about policy developments in mental health and substance abuse?
- How can RNs demonstrate leadership in advancing the mental health strategy for Canada?
- What tools exist to support the implementation of this strategy across practice settings?
As holistic health care practitioners, we utilize our skills to care for the mental health and well-being of Canadians across the nation. Nurses are well-positioned to drive improvements in mental health services delivery across all aspects of Canadian health-care.
