Community Mental Health Advocacy

Conwy and Denbighshire Community Mental Health Advocacy

What is Advocacy?

“Advocacy means taking action to help people say what they want, secure their rights, represent their interests and obtain the services they need.” Action for Advocacy

Independent – Confidential – Non-Judgmental – Free

Our advocates can:

  • Listen to your concerns
  • Give you information about your rights, mental health law, benefits, housing issues, managing debt and much more
  • Help you to complain if you are unhappy about any part of your care or treatment
  • Help you to access advice and guidance agencies such as welfare rights and Citizens Advice Bureaux
  • Help you to think through what options you have and to make decisions

We provide qualified advocates, who can offer formal representation and support at meetings and appointments. An advocate is someone who will listen to your worries and problems and work along side you to achieve your aims. Advocates are a valuable source of information and can help the people who use their service to feel in control of their own lives – to feel empowered.
