Background: The introduction of individual clinical supervision in mental health nursing has been problematic, and has been viewed by nurses as a component of performance appraisal by managers, rather than as a process of continuing performance enhancement. Method: The clinical supervision program in a rehabilitation setting was, accordingly, revised and combined with group reflective practice sessions, skills enhancement and a Group Reflective Practice and Support program. Activities were evaluated by in depth interviews and by surveys, and results were encouraging.Conclusions: The program offers a model for further development in mental health nursing services.
