Greetings and Happy New Year! Let me introduce myself. My name is Anne Finigan and it is my privilege to be the President of the Mental Health Nurses Interest Group (MHNIG). I work with a talented and dedicated group of mental health nurses who serve on the Executive or as Satellite Representatives. We have 879 members and 19 students, in 2013, who have joined the Interest Group through RNAO.
In November 2012, the Mental Health Nursing Interest Group (MHNIG) Executive convened to develop a Strategic Plan for 2013-2015. At this time, the Executive would like to invite MHNIG Membership to participate in a feedback process in a form of a survey. Your feedback is essential and will inform the top priorities for the MHNIG as well as future initiatives led by its members.
