MISSING THE MENTAL LINK – Tuesday July 30 2013

– People not coping with mental illness are often among the 35,000 Australians who disappear each year, the Australian Federal Police say.
Launching National Missing Persons Week yesterday, Australian Federal Police Deputy Commissioner Andrew Colvin said it was important family and friends of those at risk recognised the signs of people struggling and at risk of disappearing.
“Research shows that one of the factors which may contribute to someone going missing is poor mental health and the impact that has on a person’s ability to cope with life’s challenges, Mr Colvin said.
“The 2013 campaign aims to encourage people to look out for signs that someone they know may not be coping and to seek help before they disappear – Herald Sun
