How mental health services fail families across Ireland

This week the Mental Health Commission released its interim report on the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (Camhs).

It made for damning reading, painting a picture of a vital service that is not fit for purpose.

For many, access to care is a postcode lottery.

Two mothers talk to In the News about their experience with Camhs and how they feel it failed their children.

Kitty Holland, Irish Times social affairs correspondent and Roisin Clark, interim chief executive of Mental Health Reform, an advocacy group representing organisations throughout the country, explain the background and what the report means for Camhs and the HSE.

In the News is presented by Bernice Harrison and produced by Declan Conlon and Suzanne Brennan
