Hi, I'm a second semester student in her mental health rotation, and I'm having trouble 'redirecting' patients.

How can I redirect patients when they are, for example, telling a story and talking nonsense?

For some reason at my school, mental health seems to be the most difficult class. Are there any tips to surviving this class? Thanks so much.
