Kathryn and Barry Wilson started this petition to The Rt. Honourable Theresa May MP and

Our daughter, Rebecca was transferred from a CAMHS unit to an adult mental unit one day after her eighteenth birthday without any transition. 112 days and 114 incidents later our precious daughter left this world failed by the very organisations tasked with her care and safety. At Rebecca's inquest the Coroner stated that an ineffective transition process was the single biggest contributing factor to Rebecca's death. Many organisations involved in the care of young vulnerable people with mental health issues treat transition as a paperwork exercise and ignore the voices of the young, transition is a person centred process.The abject sadness and pain does not go away and we will not allow Rebecca's memory to be forgotten that is why we want to lobby for amendments to the Mental Health Act to include Rebecca's Law so that young people's lives are not cut tragically short and families will not have to suffer the continuous sadness and pain that becomes a way of life.

REBECCA’S LAW:

“No vulnerable young person with mental health issues shall be moved from an Adolescent Mental Health Unit to another Mental Health Unit especially an adult unit or into the community without an EFFECTIVE, EXTERNALLY monitored transition plan regardless of their chronological age that meets the needs of the young person and family or carer and involves them from the very beginning of the process and is quality assured by the young person and their support structures at each stage of the process”
