In this paper, the current mental health nursing care to recovery for consumers with psychosis in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) has been presented through one author's experience. This discussion showed major gaps in the practice. To advance this practice, it was important to understand the background of contemporary research about the role and work of nurses caring for consumers with psychosis and assisting with recovery. In addition, the perspectives of mental health nurses about their practice of care for psychosis globally were also provided. Finally, these global matters had been translated within the KSA context into advance mental health nursing care and recovery for psychosis in the aspects of education and practice. The emphasis on gender-focused research as an imperative need has been recommended.
