On Tuesday the 26th July, a number of us from New Horizons went to the “Mental Health Reform” Seminar at the Carmelite Community Center in Aungier St.
There were a number of speakers present, a Doctor, 2 service users and a HSE official. They spoke about their past experience with various service providers and acknowledged the need for reform and promised to begin the process ASAP.
A number of people attending the Seminar brought up a number of constructive comments, others asked some very pointed questions . One woman stood up to heckle the HSE official, who himself was a service user. Overall the seminar was very helpful.
