A mental health campaigner from Shannon has accused the Junior Minister responsible for mental health of playing politics with the issue.

Since his own experiences of mental health services, Gary Fitzgibbon has been lobbying for better supports for patients, supports that he says are still needed.

This in spite of claims by Minister Daly, in a series of tweets, of increased investment and staff in mental health services.


Minister Daly said that such faces sometimes get lost in debate, but Gary Fitzgibbon has told Clare FM’s Morning Focus that the reality is that services here are still sorely lacking.
