Mental illness is JUST as important as physical illnesses. You have an injury? You go to physio therapy as soon as possible to help you recover.... you have a severe mental illness, you go to therapy, right? WRONG. Due  to lack of funding people like me have to wait MONTHS or even YEARS for the therapy we NEED NOW. We have to all come together and get OUR (not just my) voice across.... WE NEED MORE FUNDING FOR PSYCHOLOGICAL THERAPIES. For example; How is it fair that someone like me has been told I have to wait months or years for therapy when I'm considered a "high risk". How is it fair that so many severely unwell people have to wait YEARS and YEARS for 6 therapy sessions. The government are NEGLECTING the invisible illnesses here, we are being NEGLECTED. Therapy CAN save lives, therapy IS important.
