Joining AIMS

We welcome new members so if your service is interested in joining AIMS-WA or AIMS-AT, please complete the joining form and return to the Project Team by email or post.

For further information, please contact us.

Any working-age acute inpatient mental health team who would like the opportunity to evaluate their service, to identify challenges and achievements and to share ideas with peers from other inpatient mental health teams. 

AIMS-WA and AIMS-AT are funded on a subscription basis. The cost of participating in the programme is £1,995 plus VAT per ward/unit, per annum.

This includes access to all our materials and events.  There is a 10% discount for services committing to three years' membership.

The accreditation process is an opportunity for services to determine that the level of care provided to service users and carers is of high quality.

In an effort to demonstrate compliance with national guidelines, services are supported to identify and address areas for improvement, to share good practice and to seek advice and pool learning through regular contact with other services.

Those involved are able to improve their professional practice through this process. The commitment to quality improvement strengthens as part of a dynamic and evolving process.
