Collective Advocacy in Midlothian – CAPS

CAPS Collective Advocacy provides opportunities for people who live in Midlothian and who use, or have used, mental health services.

This is a way for people in Midlothian to have a collective voice about their opinions on mental health care and services. The aim is to:

  • identify gaps in mental health services and campaign to have them filled.
  • work out what priorities for new services are and make sure they are widely known
  • promote the interests of people in the local area
  • ensure people’s voices are heard by those who plan, pay for and provide mental health services.

Groups of individuals with a common cause come together to raise awareness, campaign and influence service planning and provision. CAPS works with groups in Midlothian to talk about mental health services and other issues.

If you, or a group you go to, would like to meet with someone from CAPS, contact 0131 273 5116 to arrange a meeting or to get more information. You can also email [email protected]
