Written answers (Question to Health)

HSE Mental Health services will receive €1.026 billion in funding in 2020, an increase of €234m since 2016, and €39m over 2019.

The €39 additional million euro announced for mental health services in budget 2020 is additional funding and does not rely on any carry over funding from 2019.
