Description:
There were significant developments in the provIsion of psychiatric services in this country in 1991. All of these developments were in line with the policies as outlined in the policy document, Planning for the Future which had been adopted by successive Governments. Perhaps the most significant single occurrence was the sale of St. Columba's Hospital, Sligo which was the first sale of an Irish 19th century mental hospital. The purchaser was to be given vacant possession of the hospital early in 1992. This development was shortly followed by the closure of the Grey Building at Our Lady's Hospital, Cork. This building was another Victorian mental hospital which had been in continuous service since 1854. These departures from the institutional approach to psychiatric illness were complemented by the opening of acute psychiatric units at Cavan General Hospital, at Tralee General Hospital and at Naas General Hospital in 1991. These significant developments underlined the fact that, despite unfavourable economic circumstances nationally and in the psychiatric programme, significant progress had been made in achieving the objectives of Planning for the Future in these areas.
