About Gwent Community Mental Health Advocacy Service

The service provides independent, group and peer advocacy to adults with mental health issues, or adults at risk of developing mental health issues, and their carers. Advocacy means to speak up for someone. Advocacy is about making sure that people's voices are heard and listened to. It's about helping people to make their own choices in life. It provides people with the chance to be as independent as they want to be.
