back to PLAYING YOUR PART
One of the future aims of #depressionhurts is to establish or link to an Advocate Service to support those who because of depression or vulnerability need someone to speak for them when they cannot speak up for themselves.
We envisage this service being provided by a volunteer force able to provide support to others in dealing with perceived authority figures or general bureaucracy. For example medical applications, social welfare meetings, paperwork, dealing with landlords, utilities, government departments, hospitals, job schemes, employers to name some of the situations where people need help.
More on this to follow later in 2012 but we are interested in hearing from potential volunteers or potential partners re offering this service
