Academic Year 2021/2022

This module facilitates students to develop the professional knowledge, skills and competencies to work collaboratively with people who are experiencing serious mental health issues. Students are facilitated to work collaboratively to address recovery, social inclusion and active citizenship needs of mental health service users and their families across the care spectrum. The module addresses the emerging ideology of recovery, social inclusiveness and active citizenship as core components of psychiatric nursing practice and service delivery. It begins with an exploration of the nature of recovery focussed relationships, concepts of power relations and empowerment. Students are facilitated to explore the nature of their relationships with mental health service users and their families. The concepts of social exclusion and inclusion, recovery and active citizenship are then examined within the context of mental health services and nursing practice. Students are facilitated to explore how insights from this exploration can be used to understand how existing services and practices may work to either reinforce and or reproduce exclusion and stigma, or promote social inclusion and recovery. Concepts including self-management, promoting wellness and relapse prevention are also examined. Skill development for practice are supported through an active, reflective and collaborative process.
