A mental health crisis can happen at any time, day or night. Therefore, it is important that mental health services are available 24/7 so that people who need help can find it quickly, in their own community.
Last year, the #InOurHourOfNeed campaign was successful in campaigning for the Government to implement 7 day a week community mental health services across 114 sites in Ireland before the end of Q1 2018. We need to hold the Government to this promise! We also need them to ensure that mental health services are provided 24 hours a day, so that people can get urgent support outside of office hours.
