Mental Health Teams

Two Adults Socialising and Relaxing over CoffeeThe Mental Health Intellectual Disability ( MHID) team provides specialist level assessment and management of mental health problems in Area 1 Coolock.

The team, which has been funded by the Health Service Executive ( HSE) Mental Health Division, is multi-disciplinary and currently includes psychiatry, psychology and nursing.

Where a person's clinical needs are judged to require specialist mental health services, referrals are sent to the MHID team by the St. Michael’s House clinic team.


The MHID team conducts a multidisciplinary assessment and, if appropriate, develops an intervention plan with the person and their key supports.
