Independent Advocacy Perth & Kinross support people suffering from mental health difficulties who feel they would like advocacy support. These people may or may not be detained in hospital, and there are a range of issues which our advocates can support them with.
People suffering from mental health problems may find it difficult to express their views, to take in all the information they are overwhelmed with, or to consider their options. An independent advocate can help them to say what they want, without being influenced by other people.
One of the ways independent advocacy can support individuals with is at Mental Health Tribunals and case conferences, and can ask questions or request information on the person’s behalf.
