mental health websitesApril 27 2015

A new online resource for mental health services users, carers and health professionals in Northern Ireland has been launched.

Information includes referral criteria, services available from both statutory and voluntary and community mental health organisations, and links to other relevant websites.

“The Mental Health Services Finder was developed by DHSSPS, in partnership with the Health and Social Care Board (HSCB) and nidirect. It is intended that this new online tool will be the first in a series of improvements to the way information about the health service is accessed,” says the Northern Ireland Executive.

Health minister Jim Wells commented: “The Bamford Report and the Transforming Your Care Review both recognised the need to make better use of technology to give easier access to information about mental health services.

“The new Mental Health Services Finder is one of the first steps towards achieving this. It will help to kick start a change in how information about health services, including mental health, is available in the future.

“The views of many interested groups and individuals have influenced the information available on this new tool. This is just the start as it will grow and evolve over time to meet the needs and demands of its users.”
