Mental Health and Learning Disabilities

The nurses we train play a vital role in the care of people affected by mental health problems or learning disabilities.

If you are thinking of becoming a nurse in either the mental health or learning disability fields, we hope that you will consider studying at Birmingham City University.

The Mental Health and Learning Disability team use a range of teaching techniques and tools, including clinical placements, to prepare students for professional registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
