Last month we were privileged to be accepted as a Governing Member of Mental Health Reform. Mental Health Reform is the leading national coalition on mental health in Ireland. They have over 70 member organisations, representing a broad range of interests like housing, disability, children’s rights, human rights, ethnic minorities and many others.

Mental Health Reform provides a unified voice campaigning to drive progressive reform of mental health services and supports in Ireland. Governing members can participate in the Board structures of Mental Health Reform and have the right to vote at Annual General Meetings.

We are the first sight loss organisation to join the coalition and it marks an important step toward giving our community a greater platform on a national level.

Joining the organisation required a comprehensive submission and Peter O’Toole, our Head of Support and Counselling, liaised with Mental Health Reform’s CEO throughout the process. We’re delighted to join this influential network and will continue to work hard to represent the needs of our members and service users.
