Ms. MacDonald anticipates receiving the advisory committee’s recommendations by October. The advisory committee is composed of 12 health experts, researchers, mental health clinicians and people living with or affected by mental illness. The committee has also been meeting with mental health and addictions groups as part of its work. To date, committee representatives have met with nearly 50 groups with more meetings planned for this month and May. “The stakeholder consultations have provided invaluable information for the work of the advisory committee,” said Joyce McDonald, co-chair of the Mental Health and Addictions Strategy Advisory Committee. “We have had the privilege to hear from many different individuals and groups as well as from professionals who work in the field.” People can also provide input online or through the mail.

The quarterly reviews may be over but the Troika arent leaving just

first_img“We will be here every six months in a completely normal fashion”.He said that in previous cases when a country exited a programme it was normal for the IMF to maintain a presence for several years.The message was echoed by Eurogroup president Jeroen Dijsselbloem last month.

The Taoiseach is planning an address to the nation to mark the event, while ministers will also engage in a round of media events and interviews today.However, the teams from the European Commission, European Central Bank and the IMF won’t be going very far; all three bodies will be carrying out twice-yearly check-ups with the Department of Finance.The IMF team are expected to stay for a “number of years”.  Speaking following the twelfth and final review of the country’s bailout programme last month, the Irish Mission Chief with the Washington-based fund took the opportunity to remind the media that the IMF would still be undertaking regular ‘visits’ with the Government to discuss policy.“The only thing that will be different is that there not be an assessment,” Beaumont said.last_img read more
