Advocacy Home


Sheffield Mental Health Advocacy Service exists to provide a free, independent and confidential service for people who need mental health advocacy support.

You will also find information about the principles of advocacy and how we work, how to get an advocate for yourself or someone else, and the other services we offer, including training and awareness courses, campaigning and social policy, and our Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards Relevant Person's Representative Service.
