Laura is 35 years old and has been living with a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia for the last ten years. Laura was assessed and detained in hospital under section 3 of the Mental Health Act. Laura requested help from an Independent Mental Health Advocate (IMHA) to help her advocate her views, as she felt that she was not being listened to by her psychiatrist.
