UKAN believes that advocacy should be independent and led by people who have direct experience of using mental health services. Groups are eligible for full membership if they are user / survivor led and run. Associate membership is also open to those organisations which provide some form of advocacy service to mental health service users and are working towards being user controlled. It encourages the development of Patients Councils, User Forums and Advocacy Projects and offers information, training and support to both groups and individuals working towards mental health service user led approaches in any service.
