Abstract
The article explores the past, present and future developments in the field of mental health nursing (MHN). It discusses how the pressure of the increasing ageing populations, a diminishing workforce and the benefits of controlled, measurable interventions affect the demand for MHN for both voice and considered response. The article provides suggestions to these concerns.
