A Laois County councillor has issued calls for the role of a creative workshop supervisor to be reinstated for young people in the Midlands at a mental health facility.
Speaking on Midlands 103, cllr Mary Sweeney urged Minister for Mental Health Jim Daly to visit the Laois-Offaly Young Adult Mental Health Service.
The Ballyroan woman wants Minister Daly to see the hard work being done there first hand and that there is a huge need for investment in the service.
She also spoke about parents concerns on services not being provided.
“Marcella Corcoran-Kennedy has brought it up inside the Dáil and she got a good hearing on it.
“But I’m asking for a little bit further than that – that we get a genuine response regarding the re-instatement of the person who was the workshop supervisor or actually the position of workshop supervisor.
“I have first-hand knowledge from talking to parents of the benefits of this particular facility for people,” she concluded.
