Why you may need an advocate

If you do not understand your rights, have complaints or are concerned about your care, Mental Health Advocates are there to protect your rights, help you to express your own wishes, and say what you want to happen.

There are a number of things that a Mental Health Advocate can help you with including:

  • explain your rights
  • help you to enforce your rights
  • help you to obtain a further opinion
  • prepare and attend Mental Health Tribunal hearings
  • arrange a meeting with your doctor or treating team and attend with you, and
  • seek to resolve issues that are concerning you at the facility.
