Counselling and Mental Health Nursing: The Interface

S. Hamilton, Colin Hughes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this piece, the authors suggest that the long term misinterpretation of the subtle and unique differences between the concepts of “counselling” and “nursing” has fuelled an uncertainty within mental health as to the true nature and essence of the role / scope of professional practice of the mental health nurse, which has important implications for practitioners, educators and patients alike.
