Faith community nursing: supporting mental health during life transitions.

Issues Ment Health Nurs; 33(5): 337-9, 2012 May.
Artigo em Inglês | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-22545641
The Faith Community Nurse can be an important agent in supporting the mental health of individuals during important life transitions by providing social support, spiritual care, referral services, and health education. Faith communities often include individuals of many generations; the young and old, newly married and recently widowed, new parents, and families whose young adults have recently left home. Nurses who provide care in these settings will likely have unique and frequent opportunities to provide mental health services and referrals to individuals experiencing transitions related to crisis, hospitalization, death, and other important life changes. Faith Community Nurses are at the frontline, aiding faith communities in supporting holistic health of the mind, body, and spirit.
