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.

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.

depression affects so many people, and the government pays for only 12 free visits to a psych., so their assumption is that depression can be cured within that time frame, rubbish, they waste so much money in foreign aid, for example, $24 million to sri lanka for education, is that so when they arrive illegally by boat they can communicate to the authorities in our language>.

I believe every Public Hospital in every city in every state of Auustralia needs an adolescent Mental Health Unit. There are too many young people needlessly suffering along with their family and friends
