Advocacy at Tooting Hub

On the first Monday of each month highly trained and experienced advocates will be on hand to help anyone who has used mental health services to:

  • develop a voice and have a say about your treatment and care
  • give guidance and support to enable you to understand your rights
  • ensure that where needed you can access people to speak on your behalf.

This service is available to anyone living in Wandsworth who has used mental health services.
