A Vision for Change - Mental Health Services

'A Vision for Change (PDF)' is a national policy, in place since 2006, that sets out the direction for Mental Health Services in Ireland. It describes a framework for building and fostering positive mental health across the entire community and for providing accessible, community-based, specialist services for people with mental illness. It proposes a holistic view of mental illness and recommends an integrated multidisciplinary approach. An expert group of different professional disciplines, health service managers, researchers, voluntary organisations, and service user groups developed this policy.
