Mental Health Reform Anniversary Event Set

16 March 2022

Mental Health Reform (MHR) is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year by hosting a half-day hybrid conference. This conference will explore the biggest mental health challenges facing Ireland today, and the opportunities for change.

The event will take place on Thursday, 31st March, 09:30 AM – 1:00 PM. This Mental Health Reform anniversary event will be broadcast from Wood Quay Venue, Dublin and live streamed to the public. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the event in Wood Quay is by invitation only. To watch the event online, register for your free place here on Eventbrite.

Attendees will hear from leaders, policy-makers and activists who will discuss key developments in mental health and aspirations for the future. Through live panel discussions, the conference will present a range of focused subjects to provoke debate and stimulate action.

MHR will also be launching a new report at the conference as part of the Brave New Connections project, an initiative supporting capacity-building for Voluntary and Community Sector mental health organisations adapting to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The report will examine the contribution of the sector within the wider mental health ecosystem in Ireland. The hybrid conference is free, online and open to MHR members, partners and like-minded stakeholders from across Ireland and beyond.

External experts and leading thinkers have been invited to provide additional stimuli and new perspectives. This will be a historic year for mental health in Ireland. Join MHR as they look back and move forward into a new decade of advocacy, innovation, research and collaboration.
