Mental health campaign
Mental health is a human rights issue. Amnesty International Ireland has been campaigning on mental health since 2003. We have been working in partnership with our Experts by Experience Advisory Group to demand action from the government and achieve real improvement in the lives of people who experience mental health difficulties.
Our current priorities:
Mental Health Act 2001 review and Capacity legislation
Law to drive the reform of mental health services
Challenging mental health prejudice and discrimination
Children and young people's right to mental health
