My son tried Qld, NSW and Victoria seeking help for his drug addiction and depression.
He was informed that it would be a minimum of a 3 week waiting period before he could be entered into drug rehabilitation.
He knew he was in need of immediate treatment, which the medical profession ignored, and he knew he could not wait any longer.
While at a train station he broke a bottle and slashed his wrists and face. He was rushed to hospital by Ambulance. He was admitted to Mental Health and kept in for 2 days.
In this time psychiatrists assessed him and advised that they were unable to by pass him into drug rehabilitation.
My son was released from hospital at 5.55PM, two days after he was admitted.
He went home, hung himself and was found dead 6.30PM that evening.
I had to identify his body.
