In this episode, we pull back the curtain and see the inner workings of our mental health system, its origins and legacies. We’ll learn what happened when Ireland moved to close our old asylum system and create something new. And we’ll look at what we are left with now: the problems, the waiting lists and the logjams, and ask, is this fixable? And if so, how?
In this episode, we speak to Martin Rogan, CEO of Mental Health Ireland, John Saunders, CEO of Shine and Chair of Mental Health Commission, Dr Eddie Murphy. Clinical Psychologist, Dr John Hillery, President of the Irish College of Psychiatrists, and finally Lisa shares her experiences being bounced in and out of the system over a number of years.
