I am a ten year experienced RN in Medical/ Surgery and Rehab. I have an interview tomorrow at a Behavioral Health Facility. I have not used much in the mental health field, yes,sending suicidal patient to the Psych floor after stabilizing. I am wondering what to review and how honest I should be about my lack of knowledge or experience in MH.
Any advice you have for the interview is greatly appreciated. They liked my resume.

Focus on your Med/Surge experience dealing with psych patients. A person with your skill set can be valuable in a mental health facility.

They may ask you how you have handled difficult patients or their families

The other thing they may ask is about your ability to function in a team

Hope these help. Good luck
