Motion on Mental Health

Today the Regional Group TDs have brought forward a motion on mental health to the floor of Dáil Éireann, which I am pleased has been accepted by the government.

Mental health is such an important issue which requires absolute focus and commitment to solving# the issues that we have. We need to properly resource emergency departments from an infrastructural perspective, provide support and funding to community NGOs such as

Hoped Charity

here in Newbridge that do incredible work and also provide more supports for older people who may be struggling with their mental health as a result of isolation and loneliness due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
