The purpose of this Learning Strategy is to outline recommended training requirements relating to the full implementation of the Mental Health Act, 2001 with a view to informing the commissioning and sustainability of appropriate training resources and materials. The need for training is clearly stated within the Mental Health Act 2001 (Approved Centres) Regulations 2006 (S.I. No. 551 of 2006).

This Strategy is intended to provide a structure for the Health Service Executive and allied organisations to assist with the planning and commissioning of training in meeting the requirements of the MHA 2001-2009 and beyond.

This Strategy is targeted at all professional groups, education and training providers and seeks to provide direction to mental health staff in planning and designing training to meet the needs of a modern mental health service. The initial consultation process required engaging with professional bodies, academic experts, and service users on the validity of the methodologies best suited to the acquisition of professional knowledge and skills. Further extensive consultation will be required with operational managers - Heads of Services, Local Health Managers, Heads of Disciplines, Service Users and Clinical Leads to develop plans to support the implementation of the strategy.
