The only course of its kind in Wales, this programme of study is for those intending to become Approved Mental Health Professionals (AMHPs). It has been introduced to meet the new roles and responsibilities for professionals working with individuals who are considered for, and who become subject to compulsory hospital admission and/or treatment and aftercare introduced in the Mental Health Act 2007. It has recently been re-validated by the Care Council for Wales and is designed to meet the key competencies required by the Welsh Government and the key skills considered by the Care Council for Wales to be appropriate for the role.
