‘Sharing the Vision’ is the successor to ‘A Vision for Change’ that was launched in 2006. It carries forward those elements of the original policy that still have relevance in-light of expert opinion
Sharing the Vision: A Mental Health Policy for Everyone
It incorporates new recommendations as appropriate to enhance national policy, while simultaneously aligning with the ten-year vision for reform and transformation of Ireland’s health and social care services encapsulated in the Sláintecare report.

A large-scale consultation process informed the recommendations in this policy, and directly engaged a wide range of stakeholders, including people with personal experience, family members, community and voluntary sector groups and staff.
