At St Patrick's Mental Health Services, we encourage you to learn more about and engage in self-advocacy.
Advocacy is important in empowering you to express your views and concerns, to access information, to protect your rights, and to play an active part in your mental health care plan and recovery.
Self-advocacy means being able to speak up for yourself and what’s important to you, to be informed about your rights, and to make choices and decisions for yourself.
At St Patrick's Mental Health Services, we encourage you to self-advocate. Self-advocacy is supported through the care planning process, and service users also have access to independent advocates to provide impartial, non-judgmental and empathetic support.
Find out more about the independent advocacy services you can access below.
