Australia – Mental Health – Light a candle for mental health

On Monday night our message will be impossible to miss. Thousands of candles on the lawns of Parliament House spelling out "fund hope for mental health."

Attached to every candle will be a personal note: a dedication, a demand for action, a story of hope. Click here to add your candle.

Monday is our chance to bring this issue out of the dark — and with our message writ large and glowing, ensure mental health is top of the agenda for crucial budget decisions this week.

Thanks for all the you do,

The GetUp Team.

"Mr Cologne, who suffered from depression, had gone to the hospital’s emergency department twice previously… each time he was sent home after being refused admission to the hospital’s inpatient mental health facility… On his last visit on Thursday, he begged to be committed, he begged for help."
