Reform the Mental Health Act

Reform the Mental Health Act


In Ireland today, people who are being treated in hospital for a mental health difficulty continue to have their human rights put at risk, as a result of the Mental Health Act, 2001.

Mental Health Reform is campaigning for an updated Mental Health Act.

To stay up to date with the campaign and developments, follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
