Public asked for views on Longford mental health services

The public is being asked for their views of mental health services in the Longford region at a number of special workshops being hosted in the county today.

The public are being encouraged to take part in the workshops as the HSE seek to develop a local forum for mental health service users and family members to raise any concerns or issues.

The opening workshop for service users, family members, and supporters gets underway in the Longford health centre today between 10am and 1 pm, while a repeat session is being held between 7 pm and 8.15 in the Longford county library.

A staff session is also being held for voluntary groups and those working with mental health service users in the afternoon at the Longford health centre between 1 and 4pm.
