Lecture Overview

It is essential for all nurses - not just those working in mental health settings - to have the knowledge, skills and confidence to perform an acute mental status examination. This talk from Amanda Smith addresses some of the stigma around common mental illnesses you may encounter in your practice, as well as some practical tips for conducting a mental status examination and providing appropriate care.

Amanda Smith 

Amanda Smith is a proud and vocal advocate of comprehensive health care with a passion for mental health nursing. Although initially starting her career in general nursing, working across the aged care sector, cardiac, medical, and later emergency departments, Amanda's desire to improve quality outcomes for those suffering with mental distress navigated her career towards mental health nursing and education. For the last 7 years, along with being a clinical practitioner in the mental health care arena, Amanda has additionally been privileged to work alongside some truly amazing academics as a sessional tutor teaching in tertiary institutions in Queensland for undergraduate nursing and paramedic degree students. Amanda's experience spans all facets of mental health nursing from acute triage and assessment, to emergency and special service co-response teams, to high dependency and case management. She is passionate about consumers receiving quality service from first contact throughout their entire mental health journey. She believes the fundamental issue for all consumers is the barriers of stigma and discrimination, which often prevents people from making that initial contact and receiving both accurate physical and mental health assessment. It is Amanda's ongoing intention to address these barriers through drawing on her own journey and experience, as well as through clinical practice, education, and ongoing professional development.
