An Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) is a specialized and accredited mental health practitioner in the United Kingdom who plays a crucial role in the assessment, detention, and treatment of individuals experiencing a mental health crisis. This role is defined by the Mental Health Act 1983 and involves safeguarding individuals' rights and ensuring their mental health needs are met.


At the end of the day, participants will be:
• Up to date with recent case-law and Supreme court decisions;
• Clear about recent policy developments in mental health and social care;
• Re-familiarised with some key cases of relevance to AMHP practice.
• Refreshed in their knowledge of the English legal and court system and sources of case-law.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
