Southern Health Board (SHB)
The Southern Health Board is responsible for the provision of health and personal social services to people living in the counties of Cork and Kerry. We seek to improve the health and quality of. life of the individuals and communities we serve by constant evaluation and development of 'our services. The aim of the Board's mental health services is to meet the specific needs of persons suffering from mental illness in an appropriate and high quality care setting and to provide them with the opportunity to maximise their potential in personal, social and economic terms. Our mental health services have been developing over the past decade in line with the national polity Planning for the Future (1984) and much progress has been made. However, it is acknowledged that much remains to be done. In November, 2001 a Steering Group was established to review mental health services in Cork and Kerry, bearing in mind the new National Health Strategy, recent mental health legislation, evidence from other countries, consumer expectation and the feedback from consumer experience of our current mental health services. During the development of the strategy document Focussing Minds ..... Developing Mental Health Services in Cork. and Kerry July, 2002, one of the key issues raised by those we consulted, including users, carers, General Practitioners, voluntary groups and indeed our own staff, was the necessity for information on the range of mental health services available in Cork and Kerry. This Information Guide to Adult Mental Health Services in Cork and Kerry has been produced to help you access the services and provides contact details of a number of relevant voluntary and support groups.
