Jody Bowles started this petition to Welsh Government

I am doing this petition because we need more funding for our mental health services. I fell this is important because we are losing to many people to suicide and so many are still suffering. Including my own children and mother.

8% were experiencing suicidal thoughts at the beginning of the first national lockdown, increasing to nearly 10% by mid-May.
Women, young people (18-29 years), those from more socially disadvantaged backgrounds, and those with pre-existing mental health problems had worse outcomes across nearly all psychological outcomes
One in four had symptoms of moderate or severe depression at the beginning of lockdown. Th percentages of self harm have also risen since our first lock down and those people are still seeking support now in April 2021
Feelings of entrapment and defeat (key psychological risk factors for suicidal thoughts) Continued to bring the nation to a depressive state. 
Levels of loneliness and social support remained at an all time high by the time we hit our second lockdown.

Without extra funding we will have another pandemic not to covid-19 but to deaths multiplying all over Wales and in fact the Uk.
