Recent news proposed that the government focusing on the mental health and well being of young people has declared $62 million additional fund to the sector.
Mental Health Foundation Chief Executive, Judi Clements asserted that they are very happy to see the government putting a step forward for these people who are mentally challenged. She affirmed that most of the times these people are neglected by the society.
Moreover, these people are always looked upon as someone evil, and are hence, criticized and more often made fun of and even disrespected.
She emphasized that the fund are more than donations for these people, it will make them feel that even they are a part of this society. Rather, the government has made these people realize that they are a part of the society and even the future of the country.
The funds will help raise organizations that will specifically emphasis on this group of people, their care takers, their education and health and family.
Ms Clements said, "Greater coordination in this area and a multi-faceted approach can only be a good thing".
She added that if these young people are helped to develop skills with which they can face the difficulties of everyday life like stress, frustration, then the lives of such people can change drastically.
