National Framework for Recovery in Mental Health

The Framework is based on current understanding of recovery and how service provision supports it.

The National Framework for Recovery in Mental Health  builds on the committed efforts in recent decades of Irish service users, family members, carers and service providers to develop a more recovery-oriented mental health service that is worthy of those who use and provide that service.

The Framework was developed based on current understanding of recovery and how mental health service provision supports recovery. In keeping with the recovery ethos, it was co-produced with service users, family members and carers and experts by experience.

The National Framework for Recovery in Mental Health is for service users, family members and carers, mental health service providers and the voluntary and community sector. It will facilitate the development of recovery-oriented services from 2018-2020, at which point it will be reviewed.

Timeframe for statutory registration

 

Draft regulations to designate the professions of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and to establish a registration board will be ready for submission to the Houses of the Oireachtas for their approval during the present session, the Minister for Health, Simon Harris, has told the Dail.

 

The Minister recently concluded a public consultation on  his proposal to regulate counsellors generally under the Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005.

 

On foot of the consultation process, He has decided to proceed with the designation of two distinct professions under the Act, that of counsellor and psychotherapist. Each will have its own register under one registration board. This decision has been communicated to the Health and Social Care Professionals Council, the relevant professional bodies and all the respondents to the public consultation process.

 

Subject to the approval of the Houses, the next step will be the appointment of the 13 members of the registration board, following the submission of suitable candidates for the Minister's consideration, by the Public Appointments Service. The aim is that the registration board will be in a position early in the New Year to begin the task of drafting the various bye-laws to allow it to establish its registers.
