Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
To make mental health equivalent to physical health in terms of funding, resources and public awareness.
It's all part of making a better world.
It will be a better place as people with mental health issues can get more and better help, closer to home and hopefully prevent hospital admissions and improve the general mental health of the nation and particularly young people.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by many different people from every age in society, but mainly young people.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Reduced number of suicides due to mental health conditions.
Reduced hospital admissions due to issues such as self harming.
Increase in funding and resources allocated to mental health services.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
If more young people feel they have the access and support they need with mental health services, they know where they can be accessed and as a result they feel more positive and encouraged to seek the help they need.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
