Australian Politicians and Governments
Petition Background (Preamble)
Almost half of all Australians will experience a mental illness in their lifetime. Mental health touches everyone in our community and as of such we need to remove the negative stigma and avoidance of addressing the issue.
Our attitudes towards depression has resulted in the majority of suffers to resist in seeking help and as of such with in the next 20 years depression will only be preceded by heart attacks as the number medical cause of death and disability in Australia.
Our goal is to have the government of Australia to strive towards eradicating the negative stigma surrounding mental health and mental illness together with funding to provide relief to those with the disability.
A proud initiative of the Your Kiss Counts by Momentum for Australia Charity.
We, the undersigned, call on Australian Parliaments to fund and promote initiatives that raise the awareness of Depression as well as create funding to make treatment for Depression more accessible to all Australians
