Deputy Catherine Connolly asked the Minister for Health the reason the six annual reports from 2006 to 2011 of the two independent monitoring groups for A Vision for Change are not available on the HSE website; if these reports are currently available to the public; if they will be made available online given they are an important resource for the monitoring and implementation of mental health policy in Ireland; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Written answers (Question to Health)

With regard to the availability of A Vision for Change monitoring group reports on the HSE website, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond directly to the Deputy as soon as possible. I will also request that these reports are posted on both the Department of Health and HSE websites.

The six annual reports from 2007 to 2011 of the Independent Monitoring Group can be found at the below link, included for the Deputy's Convenience. https://www.drugsandalcohol.ie/cgi/search/archive/typex/?screen=Search&dataset=archive&_action_search=Search&titlex_merge=ALL&titlex=A+vision+for+change&subjectx_merge=ALL&subjectx=&q_merge=ALL&q=&satisfyall=ALL&order=-date%2Fbrowse_by%2Ftitle.
