Review and fund improved diagnosis and treatment of ADHD/ASD
With this petition, we ask the Government to:
-Increase funding for mental health and neurodivergency services to improve services and reduce waiting times to under 6 months
-Fund improved training for MH professionals on how to accurately identify and diagnose neurodivergency
The Government has failed neurodiverse individuals non-stop with lack of training from mental health professionals, extremely long waiting times, disorganisation from services leading to forgotten patients and poor treatment. Patients en masse are facing mental health crises as a direct response to the Government's lack of action, and neurodivergency is being critically underdiagnosed and treated as a direct result. This needs resolving urgently.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
