Delete Logan Paul's YouTube Channel
Logan paul has gotten away with a lot of stuff. He took it way to far this time. Logan paul has uploaded a vlog today of him going up to a body in Japan's suicide forest, a body of a hanging man. All he did was blur the deceased man's face out. He got close to the body and told the camera how the skin was "blue" while showing the skin. He then joked about the whole thing and talked about how it was the top 5th crazy thing to have had happen to him this year. It's not about YOU, Logan Paul. A man who had family and friends chose to end his life, and you chose to share his death to your millions of followers without thinking about how his family/friends felt? It's disgusting and shouldn't be tolerated. But with the power of the internet I think we can get rid of this scumbag once and for all, with your help of signing this petition it could lead to deleting his entire channel!

Make Emotional Support Animals UK Legal
1 in 4 people will experience at least one diagnosable mental health problem within their lifetime. The number of people who are affected by mental health is rising. I have been affected by various mental health problems since I was just 7 years old, including anorexia, anxiety and clinical depression. Mental health is NOT something to ever be ashamed of. I am speaking out because I want to help everyone out there who has ever experienced a difficulty or struggle with a mental illness. People with mental health problems don't always find it easy to talk. Engaging with various treatment such as impatient or crisis support, still may not end up being particularly successful. What a lot of people really need is just a companion, something they can love, take care of and look after, something that will always be there for them when they need it most, a small little creature depending on them. An Emotional Support Animal is a pet that helps alleviate symptoms of a mental or emotional disability through companionship and affection. Sadly, unlike in America, Emotional Support Animals are still not recognised as a certified assistance animals in the UK. This means that the rules that apply to other assistance animals, such as guide dogs, do not apply to emotional support pets. This means that for people with all kinds of illness, be it scitsophrenia, bipolar, anxiety, ANYTHING- they have no rights to have their emotional support pet. This means the pet could be taken away from them, not allowed in housing etc... this list goes on. At the end of the day, they could be separated from their pet, which would severely impact on their quality of life and emotional well-being. There are so many people just like me who rely on their pets for their emotional wellbeing. At the moment, these pets are not recognised. They cannot live in non-pet housing or travel as freely as registered assistance animals, as well as many other things that a registered assistance pet would be able to do. Mental Health IS a disability. Just like any other. Just because you can't always see it doesn't mean it isn't there... THIS PETITION HOPES TO BRING LEGAL RECOGNITION TO EMOTIONAL SUPPORT ANIMALS IN THE UK "Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much."- Helen Keller Please Help.

Petition to get Mental Health Education on the curriculum
www.itaffectsme.co.uk #itaffectsme wants to see Mental Health Education put on the National Curriculum. To arm our children with knowledge, understanding and compassion. 1 in 4 people suffer with mental illness and 50% of those are established by age 14. We teach our children symptoms of chlamydia and gonorrhoea so why not depression, OCD and anxiety? As a teacher and I come across young people with mental health issues and anxieties regularly. If they were taught to talk about their feelings in the same way they might if they had a tummy ache, it would help remove the stigma that’s stayed attached to mental health for too long. That’s why I’m calling on party leaders to include adding mental health on to the school curriculum on to their manifestos.An independent report published this year found that around three-quarters of people with mental health problems received no help at all, proof that mental health is still not taken as seriously as physical health. If the government wants a healthy and happy Britain it needs to flood the NHS with funding, and respect us by being honest, not spinning the truth about ‘new funding’. People's lives are being ruined by lack of mental health services. We need to get mental health education on the curriculum to give our children a future where they are unafraid to speak out and ask for help.
Petition to Entertainment Agencies, South Korean Government
Mental Health Support for Artists in the Entertainment Industry
After what happened with SHINee's Jonghyun, we consider that it's been time, since long ago, to ask for the mental health support the people in this career need, because they are human beings, and mental health issues affect everyone and should not be ignored. With this we want to ask all entertainment agencies to make a plan or program to monitor mental health in their employees not for the company's interests, but for their artists' well-being and a back up for the employees that the program won't be used against them and harm their careers but to help them get back on their feet. We also want this mental health support to be extended to all industries, because mental health issues are not just imagination, they are sickness in their brain, that deserve attention just like cancer. This is a serious matter and should be given the importance it has. Art by @gehenna1986 (twitter)

Equip GPs with mental health expertise #123GP
90% of people with a mental health problem will be treated by their GP, but all too often people don’t receive the care they need. One in three GP appointments are for mental health, and calls for better mental health training for GPs have already been made by the Royal College of GPs and mental health charity Mind. Research carried out by the Mental Health Rights Campaign with 70 mental health service users and carers found that most of them were NOT confident about their GP’s ability to help them when it came to mental health. Patients felt that there was a big difference between treatment for physical and mental health: “I feel my GP is very good most of the time but with mental health they struggle to understand and I think they aren’t trained to deal with it”. Patients also talked about this lack of expertise had a serious effect on them: “the poor service affected the next five years of my life, had my GP known more I could have had a different path”. The Mental Health Rights Campaign has come up with THREE URGENT CHANGES which could significantly improve mental health care provided by GPs: Funding: Only two thirds of GP practices currently draw down funding available from the Health and Social Care Board for the provision of counselling, despite all practices being eligible to do so. We call on 100% of GP practices to draw down available Health and Social Care funding for counselling. Training: Only half of all trainee GPs have to do a placement in a mental health facility, which is usually hospital based rather than in a community setting. Practising GPs do not have to undertake mental health training as part of their Continuous Professional Development (CPD). We call on all trainee GPs to undertake community based mental health placements and all practising GPs to undertake a set proportion of annual CPD credits which are focused on mental health. Available Expertise: Professionals with mental health expertise, such as Community Psychiatric Nurses ( CPNs) don’t work in GP practices anymore. We call on professionals with mental health expertise to be based in GP practices as part of the primary care team. The Department of Health and the Health and Social Care Board have the power to act on these proposals. Please help us send a strong message to them that action is urgently needed to equip GPs with mental health expertise. These changes will benefit not only patients and their families, who are entitled to receive the help they so desperately need, but also GPs who struggle to provide the help needed.

NHS Adult Eating Disorder Psychotherapy cuts: Patients at Springfield affected SW London
I urge you to support me in appealing the current service review at Springfield Hospital, Tooting, that heavily affects the support available to Eating Disorder patients by prompting a response from Jeremy Hunt (Secretary for Health and Social Care), Rosena Allin-Khan (MP for Tooting) and David Bradley (Chief Executive of SW London and St. Georges Trust) to the suggestions initially made by patients that counter the decisions. After a service review announced today at Springfield Hospital (South West London and St. Georges Mental Health Trust) it has been decided that significant changes are to be made to the psychotherapy provisions to adults within the care of the Adult Eating Disorders Service. This includes the reduction of psychotherapy from inpatient and day patient services where it is already accepting very few patients for individual therapy. Eating Disorders form as a maladaptive coping strategy to a deeper psychological tension, for which psychotherapy has been the tried and tested solution for over a decade in the service and other services across London. Changes to the type of therapy to many Eating Disorder services have come about as a result of the changes in the NICE guidelines in 2017, outlining vague suggestions. After a patient feedback meeting with (and subsequent letters addressed to) the review board it seems the opinions of the patients do not matter. Having had access to the professionals being removed from their posts for nearly 2 years, I am saddened and frustrated that mental health continues to be demoted in the hierarchy of NHS budgeting and the opinions of patients continue to be ignored. It is estimated by the charity BEAT that 1.25 million people in the UK over the age of 18 suffer from an Eating Disorder with this number set to rise.
Petition to Bupa, Financial Services Authority, Jeremy Hunt
Stop travel insurance companies discriminating against mental health conditions
This summer I planned to go to Spain for a week and wanted travel insurance. After being physically unwell for the last few months, I’ve learnt the importance of making sure I’m covered correctly. I called Bupa, went through my physical medical conditions and medications. All was fine and I would be covered so I paid £21 and received the certificate of insurance. I realised I hadn't mentioned my Bipolar so I asked if this would be something I would need to declare (this hadn't crossed my mind). For those of you that don't know - Bipolar disorder, formerly known as manic depression, is a condition that affects your moods, which can swing from one extreme to another. After declaring my bipolar, I was told I would no longer be covered - even if I paid a higher premium. That’s why I’m calling on Bupa, the Financial Service Authorities and others to stop discriminating in this way and to offer those with mental health conditions travel insurance at a reasonable price. Angry and upset, I made a complaint which they logged. Still to this day (nearly a month later) I’ve heard nothing back. I also took to social media to try and get my voice heard - but the only reply was "we will be in touch." 1 in 3 of us will suffer from some kind of mental health condition at one or more parts in our lives, sometimes our whole life. Since that day, I have done some filming with the BBC about this issue, and have also spoken to Mark Rowland from the Mental Health Foundation about how I can help to make a change. Only a handful of companies provide cover in the UK but the premiums people have to pay are sometimes up to 2000% more than someone without the condition. Please help me to make a difference by signing and sharing ! If enough people get behind this campaign the right provision could be put in place for anyone with a mental health condition planning to take a well deserved holiday.
Petition to Welsh Government, David Gauke MP
Make Swansea Prison safer
It has been running at 140%+ capacity for some time now. In the past 10 years there have been 11 suicides in Swansea prison - all by hanging and the vast majority during the early days of reception. Of the statistics available, all but one of the suicides since 2010 were recalled or remand prisoners. The prison inspectorate has published a damning report on 4 January 2018, criticising the prison's safety arrangements, suicide and self harm management and failure to act on remedial recommendations. Despite this, there was a further suicide on 14 January this year, Robert Lee Evans, age 32(pictured above), again within a few days of reception and by hanging. We, the undersigned, call upon the Ministry of Justice and the Welsh Labour government to place Swansea prison under embargo for receipt of prisoners until such time as all recommendations by the Prisons and Probation Ombudsman (PPO) have been met and particularly until B wing is safe and fit for purpose
