We welcome the government's current review of Ireland's Mental Health Act, which includes a series of encouraging recommendations that would lead to greater human rights protections. This strong basis must be built upon.
Ireland's Mental Health Act is currently under review, gives us a golden opportunity to build a mental health service that prioritises the dignity, human rights and autonomy of people with mental health problems.
Vulnerable children in Ireland have been subject to some of the gravest and systematic human rights violations in our history. Yet still today, we fail to fully protect the rights of children with mental health problems.
