    Canberra desperately needs a private mental health hospital that includes an adolescent unit. Canberra does not have an adolescent unit which is urgently required.

    Both my 17 year old daughter and I suffer from very complex mental illnesses that includes suicidal ideation. We both must travel to Sydney for private hospital care.

    Children in Canberra’s public health system are being admitted to the Adult Mental Health Unit (AMHU). In my opinion as an adult patient that has been admitted to AMHU it is a traumatic and unsafe environment especially for children. I refuse to send my daughter there because I was traumatised myself.

    My adolescent daughter has waited in Canberra Hospital Emergency Department for 24 hours before being admitted to the Short Stay Mental Health Unit (SSMHU). She stayed at the SSMHU overnight and was discharged the next day. She found the entire experience in the Emergency Department to be very traumatic and does not want to return which is very concerning because she suffers from suicidal ideation. The Emergency Department is at capacity and has no beds to cater for demand.

    The ACT Government’s Child Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) is disjointed and very very difficult to navigate. I was judged and lectured by HAART when phoning on behalf of my daughter and she refuses to have anything to do with HAART or CAMHS in the future. I too do not want to deal with HAART or CAMHS.

    In the context of the current Covid-19 pandemic mental illness within Canberra is at crisis point.

    Not only should this development application for Block 18 Section 35 be approved; either the Federal Government or ACT Government should provide a grant or considerable funding to accommodate current needs and future needs to 2030.

    Canberra desperately needs a private mental health hospital with an adolescent ward. It must have a large capacity of beds to take pressure off Canberra’s public health system and have modern architecture to take the facility to the year 2030.
