Description:
The main aims of this report are to determine the socio-demographic characteristics of the Irish adult population who were experiencing symptoms of psychological distress or who had reported mental health problems in the previous year. In addition, the report describes primary care service use for mental health problems and secondary mental health services use over a one-year period. The findings were extrapolated to the general population and set against other available data relating to mental health service use in Ireland. This information is the most comprehensive to date on the extent of psychological distress and mental health problems in Ireland and the use of services by people seeking help with these problems.
