CAMHS Approved clinician induction and refresher
This two-day course is a specialist training for CAMHS clinicians, examining the legal framework for the care and treatment of children and young people with complex mental health needs.
It highlights the relevant key concepts, statutory provisions and safeguards for establishing the legal authority for detention and any proposed interventions.
This course also examines situations when children and young people can be treated informally; the relationship between children, young people, their parents/carers and mental health professionals in decision-making, and when the application of the MHA 1983 should be considered. The provisions of the MHA 1983 that are relevant to admission to hospital, care and treatment in hospital, discharge, aftercare and the community are explained.
The course is approved and accredited by the London Approvals Panel and is appropriate for those who are looking for an induction Approved Clinician course in preparation for AC status - or those consultants looking to renew their AC training. It is not appropriate for those who are only seeking a s12 training.
It has been developed by Camilla Parker, independent legal and policy consultant, Sarah Cannell, consultant social worker and Dr Dan Hayes, child psychiatrist from SLaM.
