      More funding and services are needed. Too many people with mental health issues are never properly diagnosed and end up in the justice system. This compounds the problem. This gap in our system costs society and the taxpayer. It would be far less expensive to assist people to be supported productive citizens than pay for them to live in and out of prison and on benefits self medicating, with alcohol and drug issues.

      This is important to me as I have been through the mental health system as a patient under the mental health act. I know what that system did to me as a person, and I know it needs some major changes.
