• There are currently 16,000 children in Ireland awaiting appointments for primary care psychology, with over 4,000 of these children waiting over a year
  • Over 4,400 children are waiting for appointments with the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and the number of children with medical referrals to CAMHS being refused has jumped by 12% since 2020

Serious concerns about the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service in Ireland (CAMHS) have been reported repeatedly. 

Yet we have seen no real reform. 

The HSE has issued an apology and acknowledged serious deficits in the service. 

Yet we have seen no real prioritisation to ensure the service is safe and fit for purpose.
