Lisa Molloy, Chief Executive of the IACP writes 

“Yesterdays budget announcement is a very welcome step towards creating parity of esteem between physical and mental health. The IACP is keen to work with the Minister for Mental Health and Older People Mary Butler TD in advancing the recommendations in Sharing the Vision, including increasing the range and ease of access to counselling supports and talk therapies in the community. It has been the long held view of the IACP that the Government should ultimately move to the introduction of universal and free access to counselling and psychotherapy for all those who are in need of these supports.”
