Mental health nursing should inspire, support, and create the conditions under which people will flourish. To improve patient experience and sustain recovery-based outcomes, nurses must collaborate with other healthcare professionals, work alongside managers to support operational systems, and work in partnership with service users and their carers and families. This chapter provides a rationale for and summary of transformational leadership and how to develop, lead, and manage effective teams. It also describes two examples of inspirational leaders, reviews teamworking, and provides an overview of the different team and care settings in which mental health nurses work, including the acute psychiatric ward, the community mental health team, collaborative care, multi-agency working, and working with advocacy services. In addition, it discusses clinical supervision, management supervision, and personal development and appraisal.
