Did you know:

  • Since 2010, neuropsychiatric disorders surpassed heart disease and cancer as the leading cause of disability in the USA?
  • In one year, 2016, overdoses killed more Americans than the Vietnam war?
  • Every 13 minutes, an American dies by suicide?
  • Twice as many Americans die of suicide as by homicide?

These startling figures alert us to the deadly consequences of unmet mental health needs. Psychiatric-mental health nurses are in every thread of the American fabric -- a vibrant, versatile part of the mental health workforce with superhero powers to save lives. This presentation will explore national trends and through the inspiring stories of psychiatric-mental health nurses, imagine the impact of a fully deployed mental health nursing workforce.

About Dr. Linda Beeber
Dr. Linda Beeber is an ANCC-certified psychiatric mental health advanced practice nurse and a nurse scientist conducting intervention research focused on home-based mental health care to reduce depression with exceptionally high-risk populations of mothers who have infants and toddlers (0-3 year-olds).

With her research team, she has exposed the contextual and etiological factors that create risks for the development of maternal depressive symptoms and disrupted mother-child interactions and shown the impact that tailored intervention can have on the mother and the child. Dr. Beeber and her team have conducted individual randomized controlled trials and merged longitudinal data across multiple trials to analyze for larger patterns such as health service usage, cost, vulnerability factors affecting health, and community contexts that create health risks.

She is currently working on several national projects to scale up and integrate depression screening and intervention into national maternal-child focused entities such as the Nurse Family Partnership, Healthy Families America, Parents As Teachers, and the federally-funded Early Intervention system for infants and toddlers with disabilities and developmental delays.
