NEED FOR A COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE IN ADVANCED MENTAL HEALTH #AMHCOP
Why has this free to join community been created?
Advanced Practice in Mental Health has existed for many years. The focus was sharpened on this level of practice and the roles within it, with the co-creation and subsequent launch of the Advanced Practice Mental Health (AP-MH) curriculum and capabilities framework in 2020.
Advancing Practice Mental Health Steering Group and the Education Forum are formal places embedded within the HEE Mental Health Team. The Community of Practice is different – the pilot has been funded by the HEE Advanced Practice Team to develop, launch and cultivate a formal and informal space primarily for aspiring, trainee and qualified Advanced Practitioners in Mental Health. It is free to join as a member. Strategic decision makers and leaders can join the group to share knowledge and experience and can invite and request contributions from the AMHCoP to regional and national workstreams. It is the intention that this community is a supportive space for sharing best practice and positive outcomes, where practitioners can benefit from peer support and advice.

As the demand for this AMHCoP remains anecdotal, funding has been secured for a pilot project in the first instance, with a view to evaluating the outcome before considering future plans.
