This Reboot Republic Podcast talks with Dr Shari McDaid, CEO of Mental Health Reform. This is a fascinating discussion on people’s experience of mental health services in Ireland, how they can be improved and what could be done in Budget 2020 to improve the system.
We also go into the link between homelessness, poverty, inequality and mental health. Finally we have a really interesting conversation about how much emphasis is placed on individual responsibly for maintaining good mental health, rather than a focus on the significant societal and structural changes that need to be in place to support people’s mental health (i.e. Increased Government focus on building more houses, reducing inequality and improving our environment might be a little bit more effective than telling people to be more mindful).
