McMahon, J and Ryan, F and Cannon, M and O'Brien, G and O'Callaghan, M and Flanagan, R and O'Connor, K and Chambers, D and Byrne, S and McGorry, P (2019) Where next for youth mental health services in Ireland? Irish Journal of Psychological Medicine , 36 , (3) , pp. 163-167.

However, cognisant of the efforts of governmental and non-governmental agencies working in youth mental health, there is much to be done. Barriers into care as well as discontinuity of care across the spectrum of services remain key challenges. This editorial provides guidance for the next stage of development in youth mental care and support that will require significant national engagement and resource investment
