It was an interesting topic relevant to mental health nursing. The effect of Meth has becoming more predominant nowadays in a mental health setting. The educator was able to give a profound information about it.

Unfortunately this pod cast didn't allow the viewer to see most of the pictures and slide show, so at times it was hard to put it all together I think I missed a lot

I found this an excellent presentation. Very clear and with very good practical information relating to assessment and treatment. It particularly highlighted that people with amphetamine psychosis recover from psychotic symptoms quickly and extended psychotic symptoms should be investigated as potential underlying other psychotic disorder. Furthermore the incident of depression and anxiety is very high in this population, again indicating the need for mental health services as an important part of consumer care.
