Because of my professional training and concentration on DBT, I have learned to conduct myself in a non-reactive way. I use my wise mind, and I’m order to do this, often I step away from certain situations, let them rest, and revisit when I am sure that I can come correct. With this being said, after a week of contemplation, I am adding to this thread. I cannot imagine, and have cross checked with some colleagues, a single Psychiatric Professional referring to themselves as a “Mental Health “anything”. A Mental Health doctor? No. A Mental Health technician? No. A Mental Health Nurse? None of these titles exist. If you are indeed a Psychiatric Nurse, you would present yourself as such, beginning with your Title. PMH-APRNs are licensed as Nurse Practitioners (NP) or Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNSs). Not “Mental Health Nurses”. You would also move forward with the innate tone that led you to the field, and an absolute calm and collectedness that is trained into you.
There would be no misspellings because frenzied typing would be impossible (if you were any good at your chosen career.) Psychiatric Nurses are perhaps the most immovable forces to the strongest of storms- I would say even more than Clinicians or Doctors. They respond to the highest stress levels upon intake and assessment.
Not only does your lack knowledge for the basic language of the profession expose you, the wild, uncentered, and clumsy execution of your thoughts are a dead giveaway.
May I suggest that you call the National Helpline,
877.469.4783 and speak with a representative who can help you with a treatment referral? I feel as if it is my duty under Oath to intervene here as you appear to be in the midst of a crisis.
Oh, and there is no fee for this.
Best of Luck to you, always.
