Increase the budget for Mental Health in Ireland

This petition had 174 supporters


On World Mental Health day, the Irish government announced they would put 35million towards mental health. They lied. They carried over 20million from last year and added a miserable 15million to the pot. This in comparison to N.Ireland budget of 225million. 1 in 4 people in Ireland suffer from mental illness at one point in their life, children left waiting years to be seen by a professional, adults being refused from hospitals. We have the 4th highest suicide rate in the WORLD!! If those reasons don’t make you want to sign, I don’t know what will.... please help, do this one little thing
