Chairperson of Wexford Ógra Fianna Fáil, Ruairí Ryan has submitted correspondence supported by many county councillors’ seeking a meeting with the Waterford-based Minister for Mental Health and Older People, Mary Butler T.D.
Minister Butler is invited to visit Co. Wexford to discuss the problems with mental health services with young people and to see the effects the lack of services is having in the Wexford community.
“The pandemic has had a massive effect on many people both young and old’s mental health and wellbeing. Missing out on two years of meeting friends, family and even interacting with people on a regular basis, especially for young people experiencing emotional based anxiety issues, the need for support addressing emotional based anxiety issues is greater than ever. In Co. Wexford we require more mental health support as we leave the pandemic and progress towards normality.”
