Did you know that one if four people suffer from mental health problems? Whether it's depression, anxiety or something more severe like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, poor mental health affects every aspect of a person's life. It can make even the simplest actions in someone's daily routine feel like a challenge, which is why advocacy is so important. As a Mental Health Advocate, you're responsible for supporting people who are suffering from mental health problems. You'll ensure that every patient knows their rights and understands what options are available to them. You'll listen to their concerns, contact the relevant people on their behalf and accompany them to meetings or appointments. Ultimately, you're there to stand up for their rights and ensure they're getting the best possible care.
