This problem is very close to my heart, as it probably is to many of yours, many of my family members have struggled with their mental health immensely and have not been able to receive the help they needed because of how the system is. The system  is broken and extremely flawed. It does not have enough funding, which just leads to scarce resources, and the system failing. When I say the system is failing, I mean it is completely failing its patients. The patients are treated awfully, and treated as if they are stupid or as if they aren't even human. It is truly heart breaking. Psychiatric facilities take in patients and discharge them all for the money. It is important that we change this. We need to get more funding for the system, and get more resources. With suicide rates climbing (14.8 per 100,000 persons ever year)  its very important. Depression rates are also extremely high in teens being 20 to 30% of the teen population is depressed. These numbers are too high. They will only continue to grow if we don't do something about it. Help me potentially save lives. I would really appreciate it if you could sign this petition as well as head over to the Jed Foundation For Mental Health and make a donation. Don't forget you're being apart of the change.
