Housing needs of people with a mental health disability

The Minister of State at the Department of the Environment, Health and Local Government, Michael Finneran, told PJ Sheehan (FG, Cork SW) that a national housing strategy for people with a disability, especially a mental health disability, was advanced and was being developed with a national advisory group of his department, the Department of Health and Children, the HSE, social partners and the National Disability Authority. The work of the advisory group was expected to be completed shortly (Dail Eireann, Debates, 18th May 2010, 477).
