Northern Ireland policy and public affairs

We lead and coordinate work to improve mental health care and the provision of services through policy development. We often work closely with partner professional/community organisations and government in coordinated policy work. We respond to relevant consultations, often with the assistance of our Specialist Faculty/Group Chairs and interested Members. Our Policy work is coordinated and led by the Chair in association with the Vice Chair and the Policy Lead, supported by the Policy Officer.All Policy questions should be raised by email to Thomas McKeever
