"This guide is an excellent resource ...It has a good balance between the legal context and practical/operational issues. I particularly like the checklists and examples from practice which can be used as an aide memoire ...This will be an invaluable reference book to keep in your assessment bag." Karen Lloyd, Training Consultant & AMHP, Oldham Council, UK The role of an Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) is extremely high pressured and responsible, and an AMHP is required to be fully conversant with the law so that they can make informed decisions quickly. Not only is this a role that can be undertaken by social workers, but those in other professions, such as doctors, can also become an AMHP. This pocketbook for AMHPs will help with the day-to-day aspects of their role including how to set up an assessment, how to undertake an assessment and how to make and implement informed decisions. The busy practitioner will find this guide invaluable when they need to quickly find the information they need to complete an assessment.
