Currently, the minister for Mental Health in Ireland is a Junior Ministry position. This petition will be sent to the Taoiseach of the new Irish government to show that we want to see real change in the area of mental health in terms of adequate funding which will shorten waiting lists. If it is not a long term possibility, than putting a Senior Minister for Mental Health in place in the interim until we start to see actual change. At the moment the Minister for Health makes the funding decisions around mental health. Please sign the petition to have your voice heard. http://chng.it/5fP4ztsc
