How does an IMHA from VoiceAbility Doncaster help? People who are treated under the Mental Health Act now have the right to independent mental health advocacy (IMHA). This applies to hospital patients and those who are on a Supervised Community Treatment. In Doncaster the IMHA service is provided by VoiceAbility Doncaster. If you are on a section, you can choose whether or not to have the help of an IMHA. If you do decide to work with an IMHA, he or she can only act with your permission.
