Collective advocacy East Lothian and Midlothian
About the project
CAPS provides collective advocacy opportunities for people who live in East Lothian or Midlothian and who use, or have used, mental health services. The Mental Health (Care and Treatment) Act 2003 gives people the right to access Independent Advocacy.
Our purpose is to bring together groups of individuals with a common cause to raise awareness, campaign and influence service planning and provision. CAPS works with existing groups in East Lothian and Midlothian to talk about mental health services and other issues that are important to them.
