The Mental Health Commisson, in collaboration with the Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, is undertaking a review of the Quality Framework for Mental Health Services in Ireland dated 2007 (the Quality Framework).
The Quality Framework was designed to be used as an indicator of the level and quality of services being provided by mental health services. It is applicable to all mental health services in the public, voluntary and independent sectors. It is a key reference document for people who use, deliver, and work in mental health services in Ireland.
We are holding a scoping consultation early in the process to give people an opportunity to identify key areas that the Quality Framework should address, evidence that should be considered, and stakeholders who should be consulted. We will carefully assess all feedback received and use it, along with other available evidence and information, to develop a draft Revised Quality Framework.
