PMHNP in Other Countries?

Roggae Roggae (New) New

Hello! I'm in a PMHNP program and I'm exploring if opportunities exist outside of the United States to practice in this (or similar) role. So far I can't find any other countries. Does anyone know of other areas with this type of advanced practice role? 

Thank you!

I am going to assume that the NP part is Nurse Practitioner. What is a PMHNP?

In UK PMH = Past Medical History, but don't think you are a Past Medical History Nurse Practitioner. 😜

Thank you for that. Closest in UK I think would be a CPN. (Although I am happy to be corrected about this).

CPN - Community psychiatric nurse

A specialist nurse who works within a local community to assess needs as well as plan and evaluate programmes of care. They provide psychological treatments and support. CPNs also see how medication is working.
