Written answers (Question to Health)

The HSE is responsible for deciding on the allocation of funding to suitable organisations and projects, based on locally identified needs and priorities, with the HSE's Mental Health Services being responsible for allocating funding related to mental health. Applications for funding should be made directly by interested organisations to the appropriate area of the HSE, which in this case is Mental Health Services. They can be contacted directly at: mentalhealth@hse.ie

I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond directly to the Deputy as soon as possible.
