A Vision in Hindsight

This report looks at the progress made in implementing the national mental health policy one year after its launch. We outline the process of this policy being devised, the format of the document and the impact of its implementation and monitoring groups on the mental health services during the first crucial year.

As there is a litany of published but unimplemented reports in the health services, we plan to repeat this exercise each year for the 7-10 years that has been envisaged to put this policy into practice.
