Information to assist with legal, health and self-advocacy are available on the Independent Mental Health Advocacy website. Resources include fact sheets and videos on issues such as having more say in treatment, what to do when you don’t want compulsory treatment and asking for leave from hospital.

The resources were developed in close association with different user groups and are designed to support those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds along with those who identify as being part of the LGBTIQ+ community.

“Some people wanted resources for when they are in crisis, others wanted interactive tools that guide them through difficult decisions, and others yet wanted information that could be tailored to their circumstances, said Senior Project Officer Simon Katterl.
