4th October 2021

IPRT was among the signatories of an open letter, coordinated by Mental Health Reform, calling on the Taoiseach and the Irish Government to prioritise funding for mental health services in the upcoming budget.

IPRT also supports the Mental Health Reform Budget 2022 campaign, which has called for investment in advocacy service for people with mental health difficulties in various environments, including prisons, and has called for improved investment in mental health supports in the prison system.

Respect for rights in the penal system with prison as a last resort.
