S12 was conceived by Amy Manning, an experienced AMHP with first-hand knowledge of the challenges caused by the current assessment set-up method, and the impact on service users, practitioners and agencies. S12 has been developed by Amy with support from fellow AMHPs, doctors, commissioners and executives.

S12’s app and website allow you to search the directory of s.12 approved doctors, verified against the Mental Health Act Register Database, based on their availability, location and specialisms, and contact them as per their preferences.

Day or night, you are able to quickly and easily assemble the best available assessing team, in line with the Mental Health Act Code of Practice, and use the time usually lost making multiple phone calls to further prepare for assessment, and consider the least restrictive option.

Other features include claim form appraisal, and a Useful Information guide, written by your AMHP Lead.
