The Health Research Board is to develop Ireland’s first mental health research and evaluation strategy.

This new strategy is a HRB-led deliverable under the national mental health policy Sharing the Vision – A Mental Health Policy for Everyone 2020 – 2030.

Dr Mairéad O Driscoll, Chief Executive at the Health Research Board said the strategy would be designed with people at its heart, and would seek to improve promotion, prevention and early intervention, coordination and continuity of care and social inclusion, among other key policy areas in mental health.
