Title:Clinical Nurse Specialist/Mental Health Supervisor
INTRODUCTION In the past a diagnosis of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or one of the other serious mental illness usually meant a lifetime of disability, stigma and pain. Treatment advances made it possible for individuals to leave the hospital and receive services in the community. During the 1980's the concept of psychiatric rehabilitation emerged to emphasize both the treatment of psychiatric symptoms and rehabilitation of functional limitations imposed by the illness. The consumer movement also began and advocated for more consumer involvement in treatment decisions and the adoption of recovery practices to assist individuals to achieve new meaning and purpose in life. Core recovery concepts include hope, healing, empowerment and connection. PURPOSE The purpose of this poster session is to display the evidence-based and recovery practices that have been shown to impact positively on the clinical outcomes of persons with serious mental illness. Despite this knowledge, recent surveys of mental health programs indicated they do not provide these services. Nurses are present in most settings where mental health treatment is provided and play a critical role in the life of persons with serious mental illness clinically, academically and through research. POSTER * Introduction- demographics of serious mental illness in the United States and globally. * Surgeon General's Report and other survey results. * Evidence-based practices that attain good clinical outcomes: medication management, training for symptom management and relapse prevention, assertive community treatment, family psychoeducation, supportive employment, and integrated treatment for co-occurring substance abuse disorders. * Recovery practices: implementing human rights, a positive culture of healing, and recovery-oriented services. * Implications for Psychiatric Nursing - Clinical, Academic and Research. Handouts addressing specific implementation strategies and further elaboration of poster presentation concepts will be provided with reference list.
