A resource-constrained healthcare environment, expanding scope of clinical roles and increased demand for healthcare all contribute to this seeming conundrum. Consequently, health professionals are relying more on professional support mechanisms in the workplace (Saxby, Wilson & Newcombe, 2015). This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Pertinent questions, you might think. Yet in my experience, as a nurse educator and extracurricular historian of mental health nursing, they are not readily answerable by qualified or budding practitioners. The first would expose a remarkable lack of celebrated figures in our field.

The second question relates to the transformation from institutional to community-based care...
