Re-accreditation to the Mental Health Accreditation

To renew your Mental Health Accreditation membership you must complete the re-accreditation process. Re-accreditation is a way of assuring clients and key stakeholders that members are up to date with changes in the law, practice and procedure.

Individual membership of the scheme lasts for three years. You can submit your application for re-accreditation up to three months in advance of the expiry date. 

New re-accreditation process

From 1 December 2018, you will need to apply for re-accreditation following the new process. Applicants will be required to submit two case reports and undertake one case study. Read the new scheme guidance notes (PDF 957kb).
