A personal plea from a supporter of this campaign:
I'm 17 and living in Cairns I'm currently suffering with depression and anxiety. I was sent to the Brisbane youth Ward , but I came back a couple of weeks later and had some more big lows, I than tried to kill myself and they wouldn't let me go to this unit again in Brisbane cause it was to much of a hassle but then I had to leave cairns base hospital and I just kept having big lows and highs, it is very hard to live here like this because the hospital cannot be used as a safety unit, there HAS to be one built here so many young people are going to die without it.I'M BEGGING PLEASE KEEP TRYING TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN.
