"I feel like I receive a better health service when my advocate is with me"

About: Advocacy Support Cymru

(as a service user),

My name is Rachael and I have been working with my advocate Babs at my psychiatric appointments.

Babs advocating for me helps me feel safer, Babs helps me remember what I have to ask when I am not feeling confident at appointments. Babs helps me to self advocate on points that I am able to at my appointment and this makes me feel more confident.

From my experience I would recommend using an advocate, I feel like I receive a better health service when my advocate is with me.
