This is a type of community advocacy; there is no law that says it must be provided.
This service is available to adults (18+), living in Swindon who have a mental health condition.
If you meet the projects criteria we will offer:
• An independent advocate to work with people giving consistent support as they plan for their discharge and to make a smooth transition from inpatient mental health services to settle into life in the community.
• Remain working with individuals for up to six months living in the community as they experience a reduction in Community Mental Health Support.
• Enable individuals to develop self-esteem and confidence as they feel empowered and in control of their own lives.
• Enable individuals to reduce loneliness and isolation as they settle into the community and increase their health and well- being.
