Section 12(2) and Approved Clinician training

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.

Does completing a course mean I’m accredited?

Attending one of these courses is only part of the process to becoming accredited.

We would advise you to check with your local Section 12 and Approved Clinician 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.
