A Lust for Life Presents Where There’s A Will, a podcast about the mental health system in Ireland. In this six part series, we ask why our mental health system is so dysfunctional, who is responsible for making change happen, and how we can collectively respond, join the dots, and make things better for all of us. If you or someone you know needs immediate help or is in crisis, phone the free Pieta House 24-hour suicide helpline on 1800 247 247. Or, text HELP to 51444. If you just need to talk, you can also contact The Samaritans, Aware, or your local GP. This podcast is kindly supported by Revive Active.
