Geanellos argues that mental health nursing has historically relied on other disciplines to provide knowledge to develop practice. She suggests that nursing needs to establish its legitimacy by articulating a distinct contribution to health care. Comparisons to neonatal nursing can be made here in that there is a tendency to place emphasis on quantitative research derived from medical researchers as a source of evidence to underpin practice.
