Title:
Factors affecting mental health support to the British armed forces: part two
Authors:
Finnegan, Alan; Finnegan, Sara; Thomas, Mike
Abstract:
The first part of this series (JCN, 28(5): 30–32) provided the background to the study, which used semi-structured interviews with 18 nurses based in Afghanistan during 2013 to focus on factors affecting the delivery of mental health care in the field. This, the second part of the series, details the results of the study in the form of analysis of the interviewees’ verbatim transcripts. The study offers an insight into the role of deployed mental health nurses and examines some of the challenges they face. The findings demonstrate that managing the mental health of armed forces personnel on an operational deployment requires the ability to develop trusting relationships, identify factors leading to stress, and help staff to feel supported.
