THS Management have called a working group to discuss the implementation of a PEN (Psychiatric Emergency Nurse) position out of existing mental health services that are in the community.  The ANMF are supportive of this role only if it is created as a new service, we note that it is a required service for the community.  However, it simply cannot come out of existing community mental health services.  The ANMF will continue to attend the working group meetings and advocate on behalf of our members.
