‘Lives At Risk’ Because Of Lack Of Mental Health Supports

It’s feared a shortfall in local support services for people with mental health difficulties is costing lives here.

Independent Ennis Councillor Ann Norton has raised the issue at the November meeting of the HSE’s Regional Health Forum West.

She feels that a lack of adequate out of hours services in particular is having a detrimental impact on those in need of help in Clare.


Councillor Norton says it’s not acceptable to be forced to travel for treatment.
