Concerns over Mental Health Services in Roscommon

During the week I headed to Roscommon to look into concerns over staffing and safety at the psychiatric unit in Roscommon County Hospital.

I spoke to a man who says he was turned away from the psychiatric unit last weekend and his overall experience with mental health services.

I really hope this report, which was broadcast on RTÉ’s This Week, will give an insight into the worries in Roscommon at the moment over the future of their mental health facilities…

Here’s Minister of State with responsibility for Mental Health Kathleen Lynch’s response to the report: http://www.rte.ie/news/2013/0623/4583…roscommon-hospital/
