Approved Mental Health Professions (AMHP) guidance

Approved Mental Health Professions (AMHP)

This document explains the approval criteria for approved mental health professional (AMHP) courses.

The purpose of these criteria is to set out the level of training necessary to provide safe and effective AMHP practice. They are the threshold criteria we consider necessary to protect members of the public. To do so they:

  • set out the processes and procedures that an education provider delivering AMHP training must have in place in order to deliver training safely and effectively 

  • set out the knowledge, understanding and skills that an individual must have when they complete their AMHP training
