Greetings from the Critical Mental Health Nurses Network!
It has been an amazing week since we started this website. We have had several hundred separate visitors, from an amazing 13 different countries! Lots of people have been in touch through the ‘contact us’ tab at the top, to offer their ideas for writing or simply to introduce themselves. We have been hearing from groups of mental health nurses creating their own critical knowledge and practices, who share our hope that this new network can link them up with other like-minded people across the country and beyond. Service-user groups have been full of enthusiasm and superb suggestions for more networking and writing.
We expect the first of those blog posts to start arriving soon. We already have a range of very interesting people with diverse perspectives beginning to write. It seems that we can already promise that this blog will not be boring!
We are also in the process of organising the next conference; positive progress is being made and we hope news will follow shortly.
Now: please read on! The post which follows is our ‘call for writers’. Don’t discount yourself! Be in touch to let us know about yourself, your thoughts, your hopes for this network and what you would like to see on the blog. Also, why not ‘follow’ the blog to make sure you don’t miss anything?
