Don’t abandon young people with psychosis in South Australia – please help us

“It's long past time to listen to the people who know. THESE SERVICES ARE VITAL. When people were ignored in Queensland, the Barrett Centre was closed without adequate replacement services. And three young people have died … so far. Mental health is a torturous plague. Our governments should be building on services that already exist … not taking them away!!” - concerned community member on our petition
This is gutting. As youth mental health is in crisis, they’re ending funding and shutting down South Australia’s only youth early psychosis intervention service, the headspace Youth Early Psychosis Program.
Without a program such as this, hope for a functional life for young people living with psychosis looks bleak.
This is a service we desperately need to stay open.
As young people ourselves, we want to ask: “who has our back?” If we cannot rely on politicians to tackle our most important issues, we need to hold them to account.
Please, please help us. Cutting this program will put young people at risk. We need the funding restored before it ends on June 30th (just days before election).
Help by signing our petition and sharing it. Thank you.
