On 30th January 2008, Schizophrenia Ireland in conjunction with the Central Mental
Hospital Carers’ Group and supported by the Irish Mental Health Coalition, held a round
table seminar at the Mansion House, Dublin to discuss the Government’s controversial
decision to relocate the present Central Mental Hospital.
The decision would see the Central Mental Hospital moved from Dundrum to Thornton Hall
in North County Dublin. The proposal is that the hospital would be located adjacent to the
new super prison site there.
