This morning's meeting is divided into two sessions. The first is a meeting with representatives of Mental Health Reform from which I welcome Dr. Shari McDaid, director, and Ms Kate Mitchell, policy and research advisor. As members know, Senator John Gilroy is the committee's rapporteur in the area of mental health and will present a report in due course. We look forward to a very good discussion today on the priorities for the mental health service in Ireland. Mental health issues have a huge and profound impact on people's lives in all parts of society. We look forward to hearing from Mental Health Reform, which promotes and prioritises mental health services. I thank Dr. McDaid and Ms Mitchell for attending the meeting on behalf of a very powerful advocacy agency which campaigns for improved mental health services…..
