Welcome to #AHPsDebate

This debate has been convened by HEE, RCOT and BAAT


To help identify:

  1. How can AHPs have a more impact upon adult mental health today and in the short term:
    - what do you think the AHP workforce needs, and
    - what are the new workforce practices that you think should be scaled?
  2. How can AHPs have a transformative impact on mental health in the future:
    - what are the AHP workforce innovations that should be explored more?


  • Everyone's contributions are anonymised, this ensures a safe space for real conversation and innovation as peers judge ideas on their merit, not by their author.
  • We're seeking your views, experience and evidence.
  • We invite you to rate and comment upon the contributions of your peers, too.
  • This debate is designed for AHPs and colleagues in mental health; experts by experience are also welcome.
  • This is an independent debate - The Clever Together Lab has been asked to complete a thematic analysis to reveal priorities for HEE’s consideration.
  • Colleagues at HEE confirm they'll report back on how they use the results of this debate to help steer and guide their planning and change programmes.
  • You will be able to find out how your voice has been used, and by who (IT IS NOT A "BLACK HOLE" SURVEY).

We hope you enjoy the #AHPsDebate.
