About Interprofessional Practice (Approved Mental Health Professional) at University of Lincoln

The primary purpose of this programme is to ensure that candidates gain the knowledge, competences and values needed to carry out the specific duties of an Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) under current mental health legislation.

The University of Lincoln programme has an established record of specialist mental health training, having run the former ?ASW? programmes for many years. Our first AMHP programme was in 2009 and we have continued since then to attract students from across the country.

This programme commences with a seven week ?Academic Block? followed by a ten week ?Practice Placement Block? which includes a 40 day supervised, statutory mental health placement. The teaching block is full time; however the mental health practice placement could be taken on a longer term part time basis.

All AMHP candidates are provided with comprehensive documentation and relevant textbooks and are enrolled as students of the University of Lincoln, allowing access to university resources including the library and electronic Blackboard system.
