Parliamentary Forum on Mental Health

Parliamentary Forum on Mental Health, Dublin Castle

Houses of the Oireachtas, Parliamentary Forum on Mental Health in Dublin Castle, provided opportunity for Members of Dáil and Seanad Éireann to listen to the experiences of those working in the delivery of vital services in the many areas of mental health support in Ireland and also of those that use these services.  As work continues on the policy document that will follow ‘A Vision for Change’, a newly formed Joint Committee on the Future of Mental Health Care will work towards achieving cross-party agreement on the implementation of a single, long-term vision for mental health care and the direction of mental health policy in Ireland.  The Committee has been given the goal of making “recommendations on how best to align Ireland’s mental health services and supports to increase availability and accessibility, recruit and retain personnel and complete the implementation of ‘A Vision for Change’ in order to provide a more integrated mental health service of the highest quality”.
