We as a community need to come together and discuss the problems facing our town.  Not only have the council not done enough to help those who desperately need the extra care and support in dealing with mental health issues, depression and those who consider suicide.  These people are desperately crying out for help that just isn't there for unknown reasons.  Organisations such as the Samaritan have done all they can do being of a charitable cause but our town needs more.  One of the major issues we have all seen heard or witnessed lately has been the sudden horrific frequent lifes been claimed by our Tayside river.  Nobody knows the reasons why the people who have sadly lost their lifes decided to do so but the conversation in our wide community all agree that mental health problems could possibly be the root to the problem.  As we all know the Samaritans have their posters located on our bridges but in all fairness that is not enough!  the local Kinross council need to fund what us as a community desperately need, full time surveillance on our bridges! extra support to help people in crisis and to support those who are at the early stages of depression etc before suicide is their last option,  get to those who need the help before there is nothing we can do.  highlighting the problems around our river for other reasons also including the moncreif island situated just under the railway bridge, this area is often used by young youths to partake in drink alcohol and taken illegal drugs.  although these members of the community may be there for a "fun time" the risks around the water and currents are still there, we as a community believe that the areas should also have surveillance to ensure the safety of our children/family members.  Perth and Kinross council are duty bound to ensure that our community and future residences are giving the help and support that they need and we need urgent changes to happen to prevent any more fatality's.  Funds are needed and we urge the council to remember you cannot put a price on our peoples lifes.
