Change the name "Service Users" back to "Clients" for people who access Mental Health Services

Being refurred to as "Service Users" is derogatory, as people who access Mental Health Services, it makes us feel as though we are taking advantage of someone or something, also the word "User" has become synonymous with "drug addict".
"Client" on the other hand is much more respectable and has no other connotations.
Please change the name "Service User" back to "Client" for people who access Mental Health Services.
