Where have we come from? Where are we now? Where are we going?
The 18th annual winter workshop organized by Cooley Environmental and Health Group will start at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday 27 January 2018 in The Strand, Omeath, Co. Louth. It is expected to finish at 5:30 p.m. on the same day. Anyone who wishes to stay overnight should contact The Strand as soon as possible. +353(0)429375161. The theme of the workshop is Mental Health Care in Louth, 1918 - 2018 and Beyond.
The 19th century witnessed a massive expansion in large mental asylums, with the result that following population decline after the Famine we ended up being over-subscribed with facilities. There was therefore a tendency to put the mentally ill into institutions and to leave them there. Following international trends this situation was reversed in favour of deinstitutionalisation in the last quarter of the 20th century. This, for most patients, was a positive trend, but questions have begun to emerge about whether the pendulum has swung too far in the other direction and whether deinstitutionalised patients now receive sufficient support.
