Abstract

From adjutant to autonomist, the community psychiatric nurse's (CPN) relatively brief existence has been rapid in terms of role development. Many of them have settled in communal dwellings with their social work compeers andmost of them have an allegiance with those people termed 'severely mentally ill'. The CPN who builds their home in primary care is a truly different animal. They have two fundamental responsibilities: as a clinician to thosewho are transiently emotionally disabled and as a commissure nurse workingat the interface of primary and secondary care. Whilst their roots are firmly embedded in psychiatry, it is the family doctor they court not the psychiatrist as they pitch their stall where the majority of people in psychological distress prefer it to be: in the general practitioner's surgery. Behold, the primary mental health nurse-historically peripheral but increasingly becoming the fulcrum of primary mental health care.
