I am a mental health nurse with 15 years experience in a variety or setting's and roles. My current role is as a community psychiatric nurse.
I also suffer from epilepsy, which over the past few years has left me with a number of injuries including shoulder and back injuries which have left me with chronic pain. This is turn has had an affect on my ability to carryout my role, and meant a recent change in roles. Consequently this has affected my anxiety.
I have a keen interest in the link between pain and mental health problems, and feel there is much more to be done to address the two issues jointly. Through improved communication and collaborative working we can see the issues as co-existent.
