Our Core Concepts

Here are some of the core concepts that together form the foundational philosophy of Concept Mental Health, “Your Mental Health Clinic”.

  • Holistic approach: A holistic approach to mental health recognizes that mental health is interconnected with physical, social, and spiritual health. Psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners who adopt a holistic approach may consider a range of factors that may impact their clients' mental health, such as nutrition, exercise, sleep, and relationships.

  • Evidence-based practice: Evidence-based practice refers to the use of interventions that have been shown to be effective through scientific research. Psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners who prioritize evidence-based practice may regularly review research and clinical guidelines to ensure that they are providing the most effective treatments to their clients.

  • Client-centered care: Client-centered care prioritizes the needs and preferences of the client. Psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners who adopt a client-centered approach may involve clients in decision-making and collaborate with other healthcare providers to ensure that their clients receive comprehensive care.

  • Stigma reduction: Stigma surrounding mental health can prevent individuals from seeking treatment and can have negative impacts on their overall well-being. Psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners who prioritize stigma reduction may work to promote awareness and education around mental health and may work to reduce the negative stereotypes that surround mental illness.

  • Trauma-informed care: Trauma can have a significant impact on mental health, and psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners who adopt a trauma-informed approach may work to create a safe and supportive environment for clients who have experienced trauma. They may prioritize the client's sense of safety and empowerment and may work collaboratively with the client to develop a treatment plan that addresses their unique needs and goals.

It's important for a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner to have a clear philosophy that guides their approach to treatment. This can help ensure that clients receive consistent and effective care that is tailored to their individual needs and goals.
