Psychiatric nursing, also known as mental health nursing, is a specialized field of nursing practice that provides holistic care to individuals with mental disorders or behavioral problems so as to promote their physical and psychosocial well-being. Thus psychiatric nurses not only provide physical care but also socialize and interact with their patients in order to create a healthy, supportive atmosphere that facilitates positive change. Mental illness can affect people of any age, ethnic background or socioeconomic status.
