The training is free and open to all staff working in ACOMHS members services, including Consultants and Specialist Registrars (SpR), registered Mental Health Nurses, Ward Managers and Matrons and the wider MDT.

Once trained you will have to opportunity to visit Community Mental Health Trusts (CMHTs) around the UK as part of peer review teams.  

This is an excellent opportunity for professional development, to contribute to the peer review process and to facilitate networking and the sharing of best practice.

We would also welcome applications from;

  • Ex-Service Users who have experience of care provided by a CMHT within the last five years;
