straight to the point: does anyone know where I might be able to access the services of an advocate? I am pretty much independent - live alone, full time job etc. these achievements - and they bloody well are achievements - seem to count against me when it comes to accessing help and support. mental health services have flat out refused to take me on for care co-ordination based on the reasoning that as I'm in work, my need is not urgent.
I don't want to go too much into the backstory, and why this is bad - I suspect it will be a very familiar story here. but I am kind of beset by huge, rich organisations either threatening me for money, or demanding I run around gathering information for them. I am tired, scared, frustrated and beginning to despair. I really need someone to help me work through all this stuff, but unfortunately my local authority doesn't seem to care and I have no peer or familial network to give me some support.
can anyone point me in the right direction here? does NAS provide any services like this?
thanks in advance for any help/advice
Hi I would suggest ringing NAS. hope this helps
