  • Living in the communities of West Sussex
  • 11-18 year olds in a mental health unit who are not detained under the mental health act (informal patients)
  • 11-18 year olds who are having difficulties accessing mental health services and support

For young People aged 11 – 18 living in the West Sussex area who are in the community or who are informal inpatients. We listen to and support young people, we are on your side and can talk to you about your choices, give you information and help at meetings.

All Mind advocacy services operate independently of the mental health or social services. You will be listened to and treated with respect. The service offers you the opportunity to talk to someone in confidence about issues relating to your treatment. We do not share information with other agencies without your permission unless you or someone else is at risk.

We will not tell you what to do or make judgements but help you to make choices and say what you want from services.

Service Opening Hours

We can meet you at one of our central office-bases, near your home, at school or a place you feel more comfortable. All our young peoples advocates work on a part time basis and are contactable via our central office.
