Mental Health Patient Advocacy
Get support with mental health patient advocacy to ensure you receive the best care possible.
Finding Your Clear Path Forward
You Shouldn’t Have to Navigate Your Loved One’s Treatment Alone
As a parent or guardian of a loved one with a mental health condition, you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed. Your loved one’s treatment plan is complex due to it being combined with medical needs. You’re trying to make sense of the medical jargon, doctors’ appointments, medications, and costs. You want to ensure your loved one is getting the best care possible, but it may feel like you’re navigating unfamiliar territory.
Or, your loved one is going through mental health treatment, but you’re feeling like you don’t know how to best support them. You want your loved one to have the tools—both physical and emotional—they need to achieve a successful recovery. However, you feel that you’re unable to process all the information and provide the support they need. You want to advocate for them, but your situation may not allow you the time and resources to learn it all. This is where patient advocacy can help.
What is the Purpose of Patient Advocacy?
Patient Advocacy is a specialized service that can provide the support you need during this difficult time. A professional patient advocate will support you, your loved one, and even your family during treatment. They will serve as a neutral party who has your back and will ensure that your and your loved one’s wishes are respected throughout the treatment process. Patient advocates can be a great resource for providing education, guidance, and emotional support.
What are the Benefits of Patient Advocacy?
Having a patient advocate on your side can provide many benefits. Having a neutral party who is knowledgeable about the treatment process and familiar with the mental health system will help you feel less alone and allow you to focus on the other responsibilities in your life. Mental health patient advocacy can help you and your loved one feel confident that all decisions being made are in line with your wishes.
Other benefits include the following:
- A patient advocate can provide you with the necessary education and resources to make informed decisions about your loved one’s treatment.
- They can act as a liaison between you, your loved one, and the medical professionals involved in their care.
- A patient advocate can provide emotional support and be there to talk through any difficult decisions that need to be made.
- They can help you navigate the complexities of the healthcare system and advocate for the best possible care for your loved one.
By working with a patient advocate, you will have time to focus on other responsibilities, feel more confident about the decisions you’re making for your loved one, and know that you are not alone in this unfamiliar experience. Your loved one will also be supported and have someone advocating for them throughout the treatment process. You only want the best for your loved one and patient advocacy can help make sure that you are both receiving the best possible care.
