Conclusion References This chapter began with a brief discussion of the development of the role of the mental health nurse and the emergence of modern nurse training. We then considered the interpersonal and tidal mental health nursing models of Peplau and Barker. While both models provide useful structures within which to assess the needs of, and plan care for, service users, they are not intended to represent rigid frameworks.

Milton’s subjective perception of the problem was that he feels ‘feels awkward around other people . . like they are staring at me and thinking the way I talk is funny’. Milton explained he felt vulnerable going out, that people were making judgements about the way he looked and spoke, and felt he should not be at college. Milton seemed very low in mood, and avoided eye contact. When asked if he had thought about ending his life, Milton replied he wished he were dead but had no active plans to carry out this wish.

These are Hildegard Peplau’s interpersonal model (1988) and Phil Barker’s tidal model (Barker and Buchannan-Barker 2005). The other crucial element of mental health nursing this chapter will consider is values-based practice. It is essential for mental health nurses to not only possess a sense and awareness of values but to implement them in practice. The Ten Essential Shared Capabilities (DoH 2004) were introduced with the intention of developing a mental health workforce which actively focuses on empowering people with mental health problems and advocating on their behalf.
