Every week Mental Health Reform will post items relating to mental health services in Ireland. We hope that this blog will help stimulate debate about mental health and mental health services. The blog will feature items from Mental Health Reform Staff, the Director of Mental Health Reform and from guest bloggers including experts by experience and mental health professionals.

We welcome comments, however we would ask that all comments are respectful of bloggers and other commenters. Read more about our comment policy. Please note that not all blogs reflect the views of Mental Health Reform.
