Save Lives by increasing the Education of Mental Illnesses
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
It's no secret that the suicide rate in New Zealand has steadily grown over the last few years, and so often those who decide this is their only escape are described as a 'happy' person, and that their friends and family 'never saw it coming.'
Join me in this petition calling the Ministry of Health & Ministry of Education to commit to educating EVERYONE (schools & workplaces) on the signs and symptoms of depression & other mental illnesses, so we can learn to recognize if our peers, children or even ourselves are suffering a silent battle.
What we need is funding from our ministries for seminars at schools and workplaces and an increase on mental health in the school curriculum.
Let's remove the taboo of mental illness and help everyone to be comfortable talking about it and supporting those who suffer.
If more of us know what to look for & how to help, we can save lives.
