Health professionals and families of youth and young adults with a mental health problem have been pushing for a proper facility for our young in FNQ for years. They will not be successful until the community adds its voice. Those signing who have a personal story to tell, please post something here and I will contact you. As you have seen I have posted anonymous stories as updates that illustrate how badly we need this. Any parent of a teenager or young adult, or even young children, depression can hit or affect anyone for any reason, help us to make sure there is help for your family if you need it. The current alternatives - Paediatric ward with physically sick children, or Adult Mental Health ward are often not even available let alone appropriate.
