National workforce plan for approved mental health professionals (AMHPs)

The government has issued a document for agencies wishing to develop services involving approved mental health professionals (AMHPs).

The document contains a summary of recent guidance and explains the role of AMHPs in mental health services, which should make it easier to recruit to the role. It is aimed at local authorities, directors of adult and children’s social care, NHS mental health trusts, and integrated care system workforce leads.
