Episode 3: Waiting On The World To Change

Nov 29, 2018, 07:00 AM

In this episode, we look at Irish mental health policy. We dive into its details and untangle its logic. We’ll examine our mental health system’s architectural drawings – the political drivers behind it, where it has fallen down, and what is needed now, in 2018, to create a new roadmap for Ireland’s mental health.

In this episode, we speak to Martin Rogan, CEO of Mental Health Ireland, John Saunders, CEO of Shine and Chair of the Mental Health Commission, Shari McDaid, CEO of Mental Health Reform, Dr John Hillery, President of the Irish College of Psychiatrists, Senator Joan Freeman, and Gary talks about becoming a mental health advocate after seeing the system from the inside.
