The ACMHN offers a wide range of resources that mental health nurses or people working with mental health nurses might find helpful. Some of these resources, such as the International Journal of Mental Health Nursing, are only be available through the member login.
Establishing a private practice
To help mental health nurses, nurses, nurse practitioners or midwives with an interest in mental health or family work to establish their own private practice, the College offers information and support for various stages of planning, starting, or growing a successful business.
International Journal of Mental Health Nursing
As part of your College membership, the ACMHN offers exclusive access to the the renowned International Journal for Mental Health Nursing. The Journal provides a lively forum for the exchange of ideas on all issues relevant to mental health nursing, including directions in education and training, management approaches, policy, ethical questions, theoretical inquiry, and clinical concerns.
Best practice resources
The College offers a series of resources to our members and the public, among them our Mental Health Nursing Practice Standards, General Practice Standards, and the Scope of Practice.
We also provide some advice to mental health nurses that work in private practice and would like to claim Medicare Benefits Schedule item numbers. Since the cessation of the Mental Health Nursing Incentive Program (MHNIP) these are unfortunately very limited.
