What It Takes to Be a Mental Health Professional

Mental health nurses are in high demand with the changing mental health needs of the world. Our nurses are a part of the Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS) within the Commonwealth of Virginia, so they strive to share knowledge and provide quality care for patients and their families. A high level of communication is needed between the healthcare team and our patients. Our nurses must help patients dealing with challenging mental health conditions by giving them verbal instructions to help them feel empowered when the patient lacks control. We also use therapeutic communication to help patients with problem-solving techniques. Mental health nurses must also continue practicing clinical nursing in a psychiatric mental health environment to keep an active license. If you’re ready to join a team of mental health professionals that want to offer the best care for patients and their families, contact us today.
