If you feel that your views regarding your care, mental health treatment, or any decision that may affect your daily life, are not being heard or acted upon, our Advocates can empower you to have your voice heard and be at the centre of informed decision-making about your life.
We offer different types of advocacy:
Professional/Case Advocacy - to help you make an informed decision around specific issues you may be experiencing
Independent Mental Health Advocacy (IMHA) - qualifying patients detained under the Mental Health Act are entitled to an independent advocate
Independent Mental Capacity Advocacy (IMCA) - support and representation for people who lack mental capacity
Care Act Advocacy – support with decisions about your care
Not every service currently offers every type of advocacy.
