When people use mental health services they often feel that that they are not listened to and that their real wishes are ignored at a time when they may be at their most vulnerable. The role of an Advocate is to work with individual clients according to their thoughts, wishes and beliefs and to ensure they are listened to and that rights are upheld.
The role provides an important safeguard for many people subject to detention in the acute hospitals across the region and with Community Treatment Orders.
As well as demonstrable experience of advocacy, you will need to have or be prepared to work towards the National Advocacy Qualification. You will also need experience working with vulnerable people, preferably with mental health needs and the ability to work with a variety of other professionals.
