Children need representation in parliament. Child mental health has been severely underfunded for decades. Its time for this to change and for the people in power to start listening to children and recognising that investment in their health now will improve their long term health outcomes.

We do need a allocated minister to protect and also educate children and young adults, especially for the children who are from minority groups, as they are the most vulnerable, often subject to racism or bully. The government and community would look after the disabled, but I do believe that the children from minority group needs more attention and care from the government and community.
