MEMBERS STATEMENT

‘COVID & CHILDREN’S MENTAL HEALTH’.

Thursday, 18 February 2021.

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (10:01):

Mental health issues have swept across our community like a tidal wave.

On Saturday Lifeline received 3,306 calls in one day, the third-highest number in Lifeline’s 60-year history.

I spoke about the effect of online learning on my daughter.

Thank you to the many parents who have contacted me about the effect it has had on their children. I have heard you. I will always fight for you.
