PMB on the Mental Health Commission Annual Report

The annual report from the Mental Health Commission shows that there is a crisis in mental health services in this country. We need proper funding and resources so that decent and appropriate mental health services can be provided.
It is unacceptable that children under the age of 16 are still being placed in adult services.
Often the services that are available can be poor in quality or have variable standards.
Progress in improving these services has been very slow or has not happened at all.
The existing services are badly funded and they are not responding adequately to the needs either of the children or of their families.
This needs to be urgently addressed by government. There is no health without mental health.

Raising once again the scourge of Quads and Scramblers on parks and greens and in estates with the Minister.

We are still waiting for the cross agency report on quads and scramblers from the committee set up by the government over a year ago.  How long does it take to find a solution to this problem.  The bill I brought to the Dáil in 2018 which would have solved the issue was voted down by Fianna Fáil and the government.  Yet we are still waiting for the government to offer a solution to this major problem.
