Calls In Clare For Mental Health To Be Prioritised By Next Government

Calls have been made in Clare for mental health to be prioritised by the next Government.

A number of videos have appeared on social media detailing the circumstance of a Clare man, who claims he was discharged from a number of hospitals, despite presenting as suicidal.

A community activist, who came to the man’s aid is urging politicians to play their part in ensuring care is made available to those at their lowest ebb, and that call has since been echoed by members of the clergy working with vulnerable people.


Founder and Chairperson of the Haven Hub, Leona O’Callaghan, says gaps in the system remain, and she insists that now is the time for change.
