Advocacy“Advocacy” is defined as verbal support or argument for a cause or policy. Simply put, it is telling your story to a decision maker, through various means, to compel that person to do something. Most commonly, advocacy is directed towards government and decision makers. In the area of mental health, individuals and organizations advocate for a wide variety of reasons, including improved access to services and improved benefits and supports for people with mental illness. A successful advocacy effort can take some time to produce results. But each time you speak on behalf of your chosen issue, you raise awareness and build support (Schizophrenia Society of Canada, 2016). https://mharesource.rnao.ca/section-nine/glossary-terms
