Over a period of almost a decade Mental Health Nurse Academics UK (MHNAUK) has grown in size and stature. The group has been chaired by a series of fine people: Patrick Callaghan, John Playle, Linda Cooper (who I work with in Cardiff) and Alan Simpson. Incoming chair to serve for two years from the start of 2013 is Michael Coffey.
I’m managing the process through which the group’s next vice chair will be identified, and pretty soon we’ll be moving to an election. Whoever takes up the position will spend two years working with Michael, before spending the two years following as chair. More news on all this at a later point.
