Speaking at the Dáil Committee on Adolescent Mental Health

Today I spoke at the Dáil committee on Adolescent Mental Health.  Groups and organisation who made presentations to the committee were the HSE, Jigsaw and CAMHS.

I spoke about a number of important mental health issues affecting our young people and highlighted the lack of local mental health services in Dublin North West.

I emphasised that early intervention is essential and such intervention should begin at primary school level.
