It is our privilege to sponsor the newly introduced Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) of the Year category, which recognises the complexities of this sensitive area of practice.
S12 Solutions was founded by an AMHP, who was frustrated with the manual methods used to carry out Mental Health Act (MHA) assessment processes, which often led to AMHPs working long hours in stressful conditions. The S12 Solutions platform was developed to make MHA assessment processes quicker and easier for professionals doing an incredibly difficult job, and we are grateful to the AMHPs who give their time to share feedback and test new features.
AMHPs and social workers support people to live purposeful lives, while managing risk and adversity, and holding the tension between safeguarding and autonomy, but so often these efforts go unrecognised. We are delighted to support an initiative that highlights the value and accomplishments of the AMHP role and the social work profession. Thank you to the event organisers and congratulations to everyone nominated.
