The Irish Institute of Mental Health Nursing was set up to act as a forum to facilitate and enable discussion on issues relevant to Mental Health Nursing. The Institute aimed to foster the development of the profession and contribute to policy on matters relevant to nursing and mental health. Over more than 10 years, it ran programmes on hearing voices facilitation for children and adults, the Maastricht Interview, Working with Paranoia, Voice Dialogue and Safewards. It inputted into policy discussions and ran conferences at a national and international level. In 2021, the Irish Institute of Mental Health Nursing revoked its status as a charity.
At this junction, we would like to set out a new vision for the future of the organisation and with your help would like to see where the next years brings the institute. To this end, the Institute would welcome your views on what you would like it to do in the future. In the near future we hope to conduct a survey to see where you would like use to focus this next phase of development. We will be in touch shortly.
