Only 11 out of 650 MPs turned up to debate children and young people’s mental health! This is appalling.... children and young people are experiencing anxiety, depression and self harming at very concerning rates. Services are being cut, waiting lists are huge, taking up to 13 weeks to respond to a crisis (suicidal) and longer in some areas where general mental health support involves waiting anywhere from 6-18 months. More and more young men are killing themselves. Everyone knows this and yet the government appears to be doing very little about it. It’s almost as if they don’t care!

There is a petition running to ask the government to place a paid counsellor in every U.K. school - please sign and share if you can, thank you! Would love to get to 17,500 signatures 🙂
