Generic Mental Health Advocacy
Welcome To Matrix
Matrix Service Development & Training Ltd was founded in 1999 and is a not for profit company limited by guarantee. Matrix’s Head Office is based in Hampshire, with employees located in different areas around the south east of England, keeping in close professional contact via the internet and through
regular staff meeting and formal supervision.
Matrix directly provides services such as the Matrix Advocacy Service; a project based at hospital sites and in the community. This independent service provides professional advocacy support to client groups such as adults with mental health problems, learning disabilities, drug issues, and older people with mental health problems in in-patient and community contexts. These services are provided primarily in West Surrey.
The organisation also operates the Independent Mental Health Advocacy (IMHA) Service in West Surrey, and has operated the Berkshire IMCA Service and Paid Representative Service.
In 2013 after extensive work we were awarded the Quality Performance Mark (QPM) and the IMCA Specific Review (ISR) that involved an external audit of all our processes, systems and approaches to ensure we were compliant with the Advocacy Charter and that we have robust systems in place to ensure we delivered the highest quality advocacy to people who use our services. The in-depth report scored us as excellent in identifying client need and our person-centred approach. It also commented on the diversity, commitment and skills of our professional advocates.
We are very proud of the external recognition of our advocates and our services.
Matrix has also developed and facilitated a number of service user involvement projects with people who experience mental health and/or learning disabilities. One of these, based in Hampshire, is now a completely independent and user-run mental health based training programme.
