Patient Advocacy

Mind Jersey provides a free, confidential and independent patient advocacy service for people with mental health difficulties.

Specialist Mental Health Advocacy provides independent, impartial, confidential support for mental health service users on issues relating to the care and treatment of their mental disorder.

Advocacy can help you with:-

  • Understanding what your rights are.
  • Communicating with mental health staff and other professionals.
  • Ensuring you have enough information about your care and treatment
  • Ensuring you have enough information about the article you may have been detained under, and what this means in practice.
  • Explaining how, and to whom, you can appeal against detention.
  • Supporting you at Ward Round and other meetings.
  • Supporting you at Mental Health tribunals.
  • Planning your care package.
  • Putting you in touch with other specialist services.
  • Making a complaint.

What Advocacy is not?

  • Legal advice
  • Befriending
  • Counselling
  • A substitute for making existing services more accessible, acceptable and effective.

The advocate, Patricia Winchester, can be contacted by ringing 07797 716447 and leaving a message, or by asking the staff on the ward at Orchard House to contact the advocate.
