Mental Health

Although somewhat dated now, there is evidence of long term illness relating to common mental disorders such as depression and anxiety being prevalent among the Irish community. 

The Count Me in Census from 2005 –2010 repeatedly demonstrated excessive admissions to mental health establishments of Irish people in age groups above fifty. 

The same censuses demonstrate that a significant proportion of those admissions also have a level of physical disability.
