Ryan Clarke, LLB, founded Advocacy Solutions, http://www.advocacysolutions.ca/, a business committed to providing a voice to organizations and individuals through the development and implementation of impactful advocacy strategies. He explains his business, what advocacy involves, and what he means by providing a voice through advocacy. He discusses the ways in which providing a voice through advocacy is used, generated and positioned in healthcare and in mental healthcare, and the trends. He identifies the challenges associated with providing a voice through advocacy when such voices are used in connection with serious mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia. He says what more he thinks the Schizophrenia Society of Canada could do to reach healthcare policy makers and politicians, mental healthcare professions, and the general public with the advocacy it promotes.
