“That means adopting a modern outlook and developing an understanding of the changed world we live in so that we can respond better to people’s needs. We in Sinn Féin have published a comprehensive Mental Health Manifesto and I believe that it meets the scale of the challenge we face in Kerry.

“Among the proposals we are committed to is full implementation of ‘A Vision for Change’; fully staffed CAMHS teams; investment in mental health primary care and a school curriculum for Positive Mental Health.

“I believe that our plan can provide decent care and better outcomes for those who suffer with mental health conditions in County Kerry,” he said.
