Institute of Public Health

In 1998 the Department of Health and Social Services in Northern Ireland and the Department of Health and Children in the Republic of Ireland agreed to establish an Institute in conjunction with the Royal College of Physicians in Ireland which would offer practical benefits through promoting cooperation in the area of public health.

The Institute is playing a strategic role in supporting and strengthening work for public health. It is also influencing the direction and content of public policies in favour of health.

Irish Advocacy Network

Peer advocates are people who have personal experience of mental health difficulties who have achieved a sufficient level of recovery to complete an accredited training course in peer advocacy. Once they are qualified they can complete a period working with an existing peer advocate before engaging with clients on their own. This puts them in a unique position in understanding the problems faced by people with mental health difficulties.
