Standards and accreditation

Our standards cover all manner of services, from perinatal mental health all the way to old age mental health.

Our standards don’t just set the basic level of care that services should offer, but they offer aspiration for services and the opportunity to demonstrate excellence.

In Wales, the College works closely with services in order to implement these standards, and deliver individuals a better standard of care. This includes the work of the College's Centre for Quality Improvement (CCQI), you can find further information below. 

Additionally, we've highlighted projects that we've endorsed as we believe they have real value in improving service delivery.
