As a teenager, nobody will see you. Unless you are about or have just tried to commit suicide, there is nothing available. Too old to be given children's treatment but too young to be given an adult's treatment. It made me want to die.

There are not enough mental health facilities & too many patients are waiting long amounts of time to be admitted to the small number that we do have. The Government must fund the building of more centres (as promised) to help people with mental illnesses get the treatment they need so they can return to the community and the workforce.

I Agree with Katherine, it would be so much better if those who are suffering depression because they don't feel like their life is going the way they want it to would just just go away and self harm or something instead of getting help. Also those who have used drugs and now have changed chemical make ups in their brains should be arrested for the criminals they are and just locked up. That would be much better.

My god, they are everywhere - Mental health is big business behind a charity face - all that endless Government money to fund advertising to convince everyone that they have a mental illness, instead of the 8%. Great alibi these days, if you get caught out -"I am suffering a mental illness"

Well I am diagnosed with psychiatric conditions,
And I have found even when I have been in contact with all available charities, services and non for profits and have urgent care required, there are no resources.
Even in the best of facilities I have been to actually lack resources to treat psychiatric conditions. ...
