Client Advisory Council
The Client Advisory Council is an advisory and advocacy council representing clients of The Royal.
As a leader in specialized mental health, The Royal believes in including the client voice at the decision-making table. As a result, it is one of the few organizations in Canada that has embedded that philosophy into decisions on care, treatment and research since 2006. Clients are represented by a client empowerment council that supports, advises and advocates in the interests of clients with management and clinicians.
We at The Royal believe that true client engagement and consultation is key to providing quality, person-centered care. The Royal is proud and committed to delivering on our Client Statement of Values.
