The Council has a legal requirement under the Mental Health Act to provide

Independent Mental Health Advocacy (IMHA) services. This requirement is covered by the current contracts for General Advocacy and IMHA that will expire on 31 March 2015.

 

The introduction  of the Care Act also has implications for commissioning with a focus on preventing and delaying needs for care and support. The provision of mental health advocacy support enables people with mental health challenges  to secure their rights and any services they may require, which can maintain people’s mental health and well-being and help with their recovery.
