National Demonstration for Mental Health - Thursday, April, 28th, 2016.

Howdy folks,

The message below this one came from Dr. Shari McDaid, Director of Mental Health Reform.

Did you know that our government is planning to divert €12 Million in funding away from the Mental Health budget???

Having worked for just over a year in Gateway, I know that we’re  not going to take that lying down!!!!

Drop-in tomorrow will be open, but will be operating on a skeleton crew because the rest of the team will be at the protest – would you like to join them?

This protest will take place Tomorrow, Thursday 28th April  from 12:30pm outside the Kildare Street entrance to Dáil Eireann. Volunteers are also needed from 12 noon to help prepare placards etc.

Please let us know if you would like to join us!

Let’s make our voices heard! Loud and proud! This is not OK!

All the best folks,

John M.

You have probably heard reports that €12 million is being diverted from the mental health budget to other areas of the health service.

This is NOT OK. We need to send a strong message that mental health must be a priority for the next government. 

Join the Union of Students in Ireland and Mental Health Reform for a demonstration on Thursday April 28th at 12.30pm, outside Dáil Eireann (Kildare Street Entrance), in Dublin.

If you can't make it to Kildare St, you can still gather locally to show your support and share your event photos on social media. Take a selfie or organise a group photo with your colleagues, friends, fellow students etc. Make sure to use the hashtag #IAmAReason in your post.
Register your interest here. 

Hope to see you there,
