Trauma, feminism and mental health nursing

Karina Krawiec Nursing student, Glasgow Caledonian University

Personal narratives will play a huge part in changing how we adapt our care, particularly when treating women who have experienced trauma

Personal narratives are gaining value as a powerful tool in enabling discussions and making a difference. Hopefully, mental health services will continue to make space for them to be told and heard. The environment shapes our mental well-being, but not all aspects of the environment attract equal recognition from services, and the impact of cultural, political, historical and socio-economic environments is often underestimated or ignored.
