Government approval of Ireland’s new mental health policy

Mental Health Reform, the national coalition on mental health, today welcomes the Government’s approval of Ireland’s new mental health policy, ‘Sharing the Vision – a Mental Health Policy for Everyone’ for the period 2020-2030.

Speaking this morning, CEO for Mental Health Reform, Fiona Coyle said

“We welcome the important step taken by the Government last night in approving Ireland’s new national mental health policy.  A policy that is fit for purpose is essential to delivering the mental health services that Ireland deserves. This decision shows the priority we need to give to mental health services including in the context of COVID-19.

We urge the Government  to immediately publish this document  as it is now essential that that this policy is  sufficiently reflected and resourced in the prospective programme for Government.

We are at an important moment for the future of mental health services in Ireland.  There is broad political consensus that we need to serve the mental health needs of the country better; the vision must be a shared vision, and we must work collectively now to deliver.”
