As Australia’s leading child psychologist Dr Michael Carr-Gregg says,

“I have never been more worried about the health of our young people”

This is why we as Doctors and Mental Health professionals charged with the responsibility of protecting the children of Victoria are urging the Victorian government to recognise the HARM that LOCKDOWN is CAUSING to our CHILDREN.

CALLS to KIDS LIFELINE have INCREASED by 185%
CHILDREN attending EMERGENCY ROOMS for MENTAL HEALTH support are at RECORD LEVELS
• GP’s supplying MENTAL HEALTH PLANS and MEDICATION to CHILDREN are at CRISIS POINT
CHILDREN are HARMING THEMSELVES

 

LOCKING DOWN our CHILDREN and DAMAGING their MENTAL HEALTH is a price TOO HIGH to pay


We must SAVE our CHILDREN by ENDING their LOCKDOWN


We must OPEN our SCHOOLS and PLAYGROUNDS TODAY!
