HAVE YOU BEEN REJECTED BY COMMUNITY MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES; OR HAVE YOU KNOWN SOMEONE WHO HAS TAKEN THEIR LIFE?
The author of this book is a former mental health advocate who had to close his charity; that was called Fairway Advocacy, back in 2017 as a result of his funders; The Robertson Trust, only wishing to provide further funding to the much larger, as well as, longer established charities due to limited pots of available funding.
During the years 2014-2017 the author resolved 120 disputes that those with mental health complaints, neurological disabilities, as well as, learning disability had with authorities such as social work, housing associations, occupational health, the judicial system (when there was no legal aid lawyer available for client), mental health services etc
Many people who came to Fairway Advocacy looking for help were experiencing rejection from their local community mental health teams.Fairway Advocacy successfully resolved these disputes that involved rejection from community mental health, and the closing of Fairway has been a great loss for those in search of mental health services. It is for this reason, therefore, that the author has decided to start an alternative to providing advocacy for those facing rejection from community mental health services by offering mental health symptom self-management courses for those experiencing Major Depression, Social Anxiety Disorder, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Rage & Anger Management, Low confidence, Phobia. These courses would be free to attend.
