PREFACE

Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing is a dynamic and very essential specialty area in the field of nursing practice.
It becomes very imperative for students and teachers to have current information and skills in the care of the mentally ill.
This book has attempted to simplify curriculum content for students’ reading enjoyment and will also serve as a reference material for practicing psychiatric nurses.
Nurses all over the world have a common challenge, that is, the increasing incidence of mental illness and accompanying suicidal risk and attempts.
This book will also provide reference for seminar presentation and a host of others.
Non medical professionals will also find this material very informative and enlightening. The choice of English is simplified for better comprehension.

FOREWORD

It gives me the greatest pleasure to write this foreword to a very practical guide to psychiatric mental health nursing practice with intricately embedded theoretical layout of common mental disorders that are contained in the psychiatric nursing training syllabus.
This book is the distillate of the wisdom of long experience.
The author shows a thorough acquaintance with the challenges students face while preparing for their examinations and professional nurses in their practice area whether hospital or community.
She has been a tutor for many years before she rose to become the programme coordinator/principal of the School of Post-Basic Psychiatric Nursing Kaduna.
This book will serve as an invaluable companion to students of psychiatric nursing, other students on clinical posting and medical students who need a brief synopsis of psychiatric disorders.
I congratulate the author and recommend this book without reservation. I know you to be very handworking and expect more staples from your table.

Dr. Noah U. Ekele [MBBS, FWACP (Psych.)],
Consultant Psychiatrist,
Federal Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital, Kaduna.
