In my career I have worked with mental health patients. I am surprised to hear there is not a unit for teenagers in an area of Australia. It is an area that should not be forgotten, these teens are our future.
Hi Ruth, I was wondering if I could possilby get paper petitions from you? This message needs to be heard and I would like contribute!
After a year of problems with teachers the education dept really needs to step up.
Ruth Crouch I commend you. Thank you for giving a voice to such a prevalent thing in our society. you really are truely amazing and have make me want more from our governments to prevent what has happened to so many of our loved ones.
Yes we certainly need this but we desparately need a decent Mental Health system......the one we have sucks big time and I've got legitimate reasons for saying so! Far too many patients fall though the multitude of unseen cracks..........
An issue of contention without doubt is the proper provison of appropriate Mental Health Service for an Adolescent.
Like most LHA's in Australia there appears to be negligence of the need for adequate and comprehensive adolescent services as is for Adult Mental Health Services on a pan scale,
I support this petition.
a facility that will be quickly utilised...
Mental health support makes our world a happier safer place for all
I feel there should be these centres in all major towns through out the nation
This is so important. You don't have to look to far to realise that untreated mental illness can have devastating affects on whole communities and not just those directly impacted. Let’s prioritise taking care of our children, and giving them better opportunities for the future.
