There is clear support for immediate publication of the refresh of A Vision for Change across the Dáil.
The mental health policy is critical to Programme for Government talks and post-COVID-19 planning.
Today, Mental Health Reform sent this to Ministers Harris and Daly, co-signed by cross-party TD’s.
“Dear Ministers Harris and Daly,
Following Minister Harris’ statements in the Dáil on May 14th and 21st, expressing eagerness to engage with parties on when the refresh of A Vision for Change should be published, we are writing to inform you that we believe that the refresh of A Vision for Change should be published immediately.
The publication of the refresh is urgent both in the context of programme for Government talks and to allow for immediate and cohesive post-COVID-19 planning for mental health services and support across the country.
