Psych APRN‘s (CNS and Psych NP’s) play larger roles in global mental health more often then you think. Psychiatric CNS’s and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners teach in diverse universities, take global service trips to war torn countries and guest lecture at schools of nursing in remote areas. But how do we take our skills to reach the mentally ill in those places – including the mentally ill within our own state – when when we can’t always be there? Vikram Patel describes a way to improve mental health at the local levels by training others to the “SUNDAR” model, an empowering, “dare to care” way to involve those affected by mental illness and their caregivers. As part of that, The Movement for Global Mental Health established as a platform where mental health providers and those with mental illness can stand together.
