Service Definitions

Services providing advice and information relating to all aspects of mental health.
Services offered to those who may require an advocate. An advocate is a person who can support a service user or carer through their contact with health services. Advocates will attend meetings with patients and help service users or carers to express concerns or wishes to health care professionals. Although many people can act as an advocate (friend, relative, member of staff) there are advocacy services available that can be accessed through the Trust.These advocates are trained and independent.
Autism is a lifelong developmental disorder that affects the way a person communicates and relates to people around them. In the great majority of cases, autistic disorders are present from birth or become apparent within the first three years of life. People with typical autism have no interest in social interaction, little or no language, and tend to live in their own world. Asperger's syndrome often applies to those who are more able, who have better language development, and who have more social contact. Asperger's syndrome may first come to notice in adult life.
Services or initiatives to encourage increased social inclusion for mental health services users.
