We are third year students in Loreto Beaufort. This is our petition to increase funding for mental health in Ireland. Only 5.7% of the overall health budget is put towards mental health. This is less than half of the UK’s funding. We want to increase funding for this very important issue as it affects one in six people in Ireland. It is time to take action as we are falling behind our counterparts in Europe. Our government is supposed to protect our citizens but it is failing us in this area. As young people this issue affects us to a great extent and we want our voices to be heard about this issue. Please sign our petition to raise the funding for mental health services in Ireland.
