Gemma started this petition to Boris Johnson (Prime Minister)

So ............where to start? 

I have been wanting to put a petition together for a while to try and force our government to give funding for a mental health crisis team for chrildren and family's suffering from mental health issues.

There are no previsions to help family's of chrildren that are in mental health crisis (non that work that I am aware off)

So a bit about why I want this to happen !

I am a mum that is absolutely at a loss of what to do next and hope my story will inspire people to get behind my cause.

My son is seven years of age and is currently under calderdale camhs , he started suffering with mental health problems a year or so ago for a reason we still do not know yet , he started hearing voices talking too himself and trying to hurt himself , he has very low self esteem and has told me on more than one occasion he does not want to be here any more (mommy I will wait for you in heaven) as you can Imagen to hear that from your son absolutely broke my heart and to see him struggle every day hurts so so much , we have been trying to work with services but to be honest they just do not work and there certainly are not enough of them. We have had lots of crisis situations where there is just no help for parents available , my son was admitted to hospital for mental health after a 4 hour melt down and I was absolutely shattered but still there was no real help available the nurses tried there absolute best but as a few of them said they always feel so helpless as it's just not there area , and lots of other professionals have said similar things to me GP's , police, ambulance, consultant pediatricians, schools . 

So my idea is that we need a crisis team the same as adults have a crisis team To support chrildren and there family's in crisis , to put in place some form of care mainly needed in between a referral to camhs and the 12 months to 3 year waiting times in some or most areas , as there is next to no help available for chrildren or parents in this time , I feel so strongly that our chrildren are being failed and it just isn't fair ,I don't have all the answers but I think this is a good start !

So please get behind this cause because Mental health in our chrildren is just as important as in adults
