The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness


Section 12 and Approved Clinician Induction and Refresher Courses

 

These Section 12 and Approved Clinician courses are all supported by experienced Solicitors, AMHPs, and Consultant Psychiatrists. Courses are open to candidates from all professions and are validated by the Mental Health Act Approval Panel England South and NHS South West.

Please note that attending one of these courses is only part of the process to becoming accredited.  We would advise you to check with your local NHS Specialist Mental Health Approvals Lead for information on the criteria for approval/re-approval, and to confirm which course is suitable for your requirements before making your booking.

If you are based in the South West Division, you can access more information about Approval under the Mental Health Act 1983 via the Winterhead Ltd website.

 

Further to the launch of our new database, online event bookings are currently unavailable, until further notice.   In the meantime, you can secure your place on any of these courses by either telephoning the South West Division office on 01761 463979 or by posting a cheque to the Division Office along with the relevant registration form.  Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
