Advocacy services and peak bodies

Advocacy services work to improve the outcome for individuals and more broadly across the whole community. There are services which act on behalf of people with mental illness, their family and carers as well as people who use alcohol and drugs. In most cases these services are free.

Peak bodies provide a voice for people with mental health, alcohol or drug problems as well as their family and carers. They represent the hopes and concerns of members and promote their interests to government and the community.

To find an advocacy service or peak body, please look at the list below.
