Role of the military community mental health nurse



Role of the military community mental health nurse



Nursing Standard 1987) 27(51): 35-41



To understand the role and effect of a community mental health nurse (CMHN) deployed to work with military personnel during sea-based operations. Semi-structured interviews were conducted to ascertain Royal Navy aircraft carrier military unit commanders' perceptions and experiences of the CMHN's role. Three mutually inclusive components are necessary to ensure successful integration of the CMHN: familiarity, trust and credibility. For CMHNs to function successfully and provide mental health care to sea-based military personnel, they need to demonstrate familiarity, trust and credibility. This will enhance uptake of mental health services among military personnel and ensure they are fit for service.
