In the community:The IMHA service will work with qualifying patients who are under Supervised Community Treatment (CTOs) and live within the Barnsley Metropolitan Council Local Authority boundaries.In hospital and secure settings:We will work with any patient who is detained under the Mental Health Act (qualifying sections) within the Barnsley Metropolitan Council Local Authority area. This includes qualifying patients who are placed in hospitals or other secure settings within the Barnsley boundaries, but do not otherwise live in the area. The advocates will work with the clients to ensure that they understand their rights, understand any treatments being discussed and have a say in discussions about their care. If the patient has been assessed as lacking capacity to instruct an advocate, we will use Non-instructed Advocacy to ensure that the client is still at the centre of all care planning and decisions.The service is free to access and is independent from all other services
