Campaign for a Commissioner for Mental Health and Disability NI
As recent news bulletins have highlighted and in my own personal experience (just recovered from depression; fought to get transition support for my brother with learning disability moving into supported living after 50 years with my parents; currently helping my 12 year old with OCD and increasing awareness of this; and an ongoing fight for justice for my best friend's daughter with Cerebral Palsy), the needs of those with mental health and disability are not being fully met. We have a Commissioner for Children and a Commissioner for the Elderly but WE DO NOT have a Commissioner for Mental Health and Disability. Charities often act as a voice for these groups but resource is often limited and services disjointed. We need an independent voice, a dedicated resource. Please sign this petition for a Commissioner for Mental Health and Disability in Northern Ireland. Spread the word among those in need and their families who may have already battled to be heard. Shout out and please LIKE and SHARE the Facebook page "Commissioner for Mental Health and Disability NI".
