UNCRC concluding observations on Ireland’s children’s rights record

The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child published its concluding observations on Ireland’s children’s rights record on 4th February 2016.

The concluding observations were developed following an examination of Ireland by the UN Committee on 14th January in Geneva, Switzerland.

Mental Health Reform has sought to inform the discussion between the UN Committee and Irish Government through its submission to the Children’s Rights Alliance parallel report to the Committee. This submission outlined ongoing gaps in child and adolescent mental health services and supports across the country.

Mental Health Reform’s position on child and adolescent mental health services was further promoted by attending the examination in Geneva.

While the Committee on the Rights of the Child has made a number of recommendations to Government, MHR’s Snapshot Analysis will outline those recommendations that relate specifically to mental health.
