Advocacy and Support Services

Through our Advocacy and Support Services, we help adults with mental health issues handle arising issues or challenging situations by providing a quick and flexible response to a request for help along with professional advocacy and support.

How does it work?

We help by:

  • Matching adults with a Social Worker
  • Listening and learning about immediate concerns
  • Identifying key factors affecting the situation

Providing Professional Advocacy and Support

  • Providing options, guidance and support to handle immediate concerns
  • Helping to complete tasks to address the current concern
  • Intervening to manage difficult situations, as needed

Helping Adults to move forward in their life

  • Teaching how to exercise rights and freedoms to maintain independence
  • Teaching how to handle arising issues going forward
  • Connecting adults to available services and resources, as needed
