Relocation of Dundrum Central Mental Hospital sign now

Dear Mary Harney,

I am asking for your support to reverse the Government's decision to relocate the Dundrum Central Mental Hospital to a site adjacent to the Mountjoy Prison site in Thornton Hall.

This decision will stigmatise the people with mental illness and make their rehabilitation and re-integration into communities and the workforce extremely difficult. Relocation to Thornton Hall would be against the best interest of both service users and their families and is contrary to international best practice and and human rights standards. The site is also remote from all public transport.

The decision is opposed by the by the Mental Health Commission and is contrary to the national policy framework, "A Vision for Change" launched in January 2006 which requires a community treatment focus. The Government-appointed human rights watchdog, the Human Rights Commission, has also said that it is "gravely concerned" at this "highly inappropriate" proposal.

The Thornton Hall proposal must be abandoned in favour of one that respects the human rights of service users.
