This Reboot Republic Podcast talks to Mark Smyth, the President of the Psychological Society of Ireland, Fiona Coyle, CEO of Mental Health Reform, and Ciara O Connor Walsh, Director of Lust for Life. We talk about how the COVID pandemic has impacted our mental health as people and across society. It also how inequality impacts on mental health outcomes from housing insecurity, to low incomes, stress, and anxiety. We also discuss the measures that the Government should introduce and put the money in the Budget where their words and promises are and really invest in mental health – particularly prevention and primary care. Finally, Fiona, Mark and Ciara explain what you can do – to mind each other, and to raise your voice and make the Government listen to the growing calls to prioritise mental health.
