2001-18: President's Address
Every day psychiatric-mental health nurses save lives and inspire us with their stories. As trusted members of professional, social, and family circles, we educate, manage crises, change policy, and intervene formally and informally. Our actions de-stigmatize mental illness and substance use disorders and make right the inequities in mental health care. In this presentation, hear some inspiring stories and focus your attention on where our change efforts will make the biggest difference.
