Call for reopening of Dochas mental health service in Sligo

A Sligo councillor is calling for clarity on when a mental health centre will reopen in the county.

The centre at Dóchas Clubhouse has been closed since March due to Covid-19.

Sinn Fein Sligo Councillor Thomas Healy has written to the HSE asking for funding to enhance safety measures and to buy PPE.

He says other centres in the country have reopened.

Councillor Healy tells OceanFM News that it’s a vital service for many people in the area.
