One in seven adults in Ireland will have experienced a mental health difficulty in the last year. We need your support to tell Government to invest in mental health services in Budget 2015. With 8 weeks until Budget Day in October, please take action with us.
Mental health services can be a lifesaver

Please sign the petition to Government on mental health funding and share it with your friends, family and contacts. You can download the petition sheet here

We're asking the Taoiseach and Ministers for Finance, Health, and Primary and Social Care to allocate an additional €50 million, as promised, for the continued development of community-based mental health services in 2015, and especially for:
  • 24/7 crisis intervention services in every area of the country
  • Suicide Crisis Assessment Nurses in primary care and mental health liaison nurses in A&E
  • Counselling in Primary Care to be made available to more people who need it
Alongside housing, employment and social welfare supports, mental health services and supports help people to recover from mental distress and live a full life in the community. Crisis supports are a part of that.

See our full press release on the campaign here

Come to one of our petition days!

As part of the campaign, we are holding petition days around the country. Check out our calendar for information on where we will be, and when. We'll be adding dates all the time, so keep an eye on the calendar in August and September.

Would you like to hold your own petition day or volunteer to help out at one of ours? Please contact Denise at dmccarthy@mentalhealthreform.ie.
