Description:
The psychology workforce in Ireland is well placed to lead on developing mental health services that are clinically excellent, recovery-oriented and service user-centred. This briefing paper outlines the evidence that psychological interventions are clinically effective, cost-effective, and valued by service users and their carers. The centrality of the recovery-ethos to the work of psychologists and their role in fostering cultural change is discussed. The means by which psychological work can embed the voice of the service user in mental health services is also set out, as are positive practice examples of how this is currently occurring in particular services in Ireland. How the psychology workforce can build on this and develop new practices and partnerships to further maximise its added value to our mental health services are presented in ten key recommendations.
