Mental Health Commission - General Public Survey

 What do you think are the challenges facing Irish mental health services?

MHC are inviting all stakeholders to help develop the strategic plan for the next five years. The strategy, the seventh, will cover the period 2023-2028.

As part of this process, it is critically important that we listen a broad range of voices who have some experience of engaging with the MHC.

MHC are anxious to ensure that our strategic intent and direction is both evidence-based and informed.

“This will be a busy period where we will launch the Decision Support Service and expand regulation of the MHC into mental health community services,” said the Chief Executive of the Mental Health Commission, John Farrelly. “We wish to consult with all our key internal and external stakeholders to inform and identify strategic priorities that will lead our work over the next period. All inputs will help us to develop a deeper understanding of how the Mental Health Commission and the Decision Support Service is perceived, and what we need to focus on and aim to achieve over the next five years.”

The survey, which should take no more than 10 minutes to complete, will close at 5pm on 20th September 2022. Any queries about the survey can be directed to Shannon Scott [email protected]

All answers will be treated in confidence and will not be attributed to a particular person, group, or organisation.


*** Please note that if you are a panel member for Mental Health Tribunals or the Decision Support Service, you will receive a dedicated survey for you to complete via a separate communication ***
