Description:
The Annual Report 2003 reflects a year of intense activity at local and national level in pursuance of our aims of promoting positive mental health and supporting people with a mental illness. As part of our work in campaigning for improved services for people with mental illness during 2003. MHI was actively involved with the Disability Legislation Consultation Group in campaigning for disability legislation. and also co-hosted a conference with Amnesty Intemational and Schizophrenia Ireland on Mental Health The Right to Best Practice'. MHI also made submissions to the Expert Group on Mental Health Policy. the Barr Tribunal and on the Criminal Justice Insanity Bill. All of these issues continue to be pressing and MHI will continue to campaign to ensure their development and resolution as appropriate. 2003 was a year in which mental illness achieved significant public attention in response to the publication of a number of reports by Amnesty International on the Slate of mental health services in Ireland. Their work is to be commended but remarkably despite their objective analysis highlighting the continued inadequacies of mental health services. there has been no increase in the budget for these services in 2004, apart from one million euro allocated to the Central Mental Hospital. Young people remain a core focus of our work and the importance of this focus is highlighted by the findings of the Public Attitudes to Mental Illness research commissioned by MentaI Health Ireland during the year which highlighted a tendency for younger people to be less well informed and to hold more negative attitudes towards mental illness....
