Our manifesto covers 11 areas where we believe things must change if all young people with mental health problems are to get the support they need. Treating us like outcasts and only dealing with us when our problems become a crisis just makes things worse. There have been hundreds of policy documnts that are meant to have made things better for us, but we are still suffering. We want our Government to realise the effect mental health problems have on us and millions of other young people. Spending more money on us while we are young will stop us ending up in Accident and Emergency, psychiatric units and prisons, thereby saving taxpayers millions of pounds in the future.
We urge our government to implement this manifesto and reduce the suffering of the thousands of young people in this country with mental health problems.
