Written answers (Question to Defence)

The number of Defence Forces personnel availing of psychiatric services through the HSE since July 2018, is not readily available. Personnel in need of psychiatric assessment are referred through their primary carer. To ascertain if a referral had been made for psychiatric assessment would involve each individual primary carer conducting a review of all their patients' records.
