Rejected petition Mental health Services need to be more available to children and teenagers

This week alone i have spoken to at least 5 different parents expressing their concern that the schools their children attend are making the decision they do not need help for their mental well-being. If a child if asking for help we need to stop making them feel so unimportant

More details

Why should it take an innocent child self harming to open peoples eyes that “you now need help” i have recently become a mother and to think that my daughter in years to come with a mental health problem would be pushed to one side i think is disgraceful- these children are our future and we need to take care of them in any aspect of life, weather they just want to talk to someone for a few weeks or a little bit of therapy THIS COULD SAVE YOUR CHILDS LIFE .
