To whom it may concern,Prime Minister.I have organized this petition to gather support on several issues that are a sad but major problem not just in Australia but world wide.Mental Illness which often leads to suicide.Bullying leading to depression and suicide at a tender age.Not nearly enough appointments given to low income severely traumatized individuals,which leaves them depressed and nowhere else to turn and in such mental torcher the only way most see as a way out is suicide and its getting worse and worse.Children as young as 9 taking their own life,cyber bullying.
This has to stop.We haven't even scratched the surface.More support is neededin so many areas.Mental Health issues need more addressing.
This can't be stigmatized and ignored and swept under carpet because its getting worse..not better..Let's begin with something please before its a suicide nation..Thankyou

Firstly the general population in Australia suffer some sort of mental illness and its extremely difficult getting the required help,with waiting lists and much more,The low income earners only receive
12 appointments per annum whether psychiatrist or psychologist.On top of that depression is extreme in low income areas or out in remote areas which with incomes not a lot and many things going up in price..all this leading to stress and eventually depression,and some if left untreated can result in breakup in marriages,loss of jobs and much more.It can eventually lead to mental pain so great the individual wants the pain to stop..just the pain..then in turn can lead to suicide,leaving behind more pain and trauma for loved ones left behind and so on.
People need more support and there's not enough been done by the Government as suicides continually daily.There's bullying on the internet with children taking there own life at a tender age of 9.Why? And its time to step up on prevention and more funding..Please sign,get others to sign and ITo w will front Prime Minister so we can do something about suicide and mental illness before its to late. Thankyou
