Better mental health care

This petition had 65,024 supporters

Today I attended the funeral of a friend let down by the mental health system. I'd like to say that she was one of a tiny minority who didn't receive the care she needed despite asking for help but that's not the case. On the same night she died I was organising an ambulance for another friend who had overdosed after ringing the crisis team for help which they never gave. Thankfully she survived. I want the government to fund mental health better rather than cutting the budgets as they have year on year recently. With at least one-in-four suffering from mental health problems in their lifetime I feel that their isn't enough being done to address this. Don't lose someone you love to suicide - act now before it's too late.
