Advocacy

Advocacy Protects Public Mental Health Services

Advocacy in all its forms seeks to ensure that people, particularly those who are most vulnerable, are able to have their voice heard on issues that are important to them, safeguard their rights, and have their wishes genuinely considered when decisions are being made about their lives. Anyone can be an advocate for individuals who use the public mental health system. The links below will help you contact your legislators to voice your views.
