"clinic environments"

About: Sligo/Leitrim Mental Health Services

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

The environment makes a difference, it either frustrates you- either makes you feel worse, more depressed or it can help you feel better.

The outpatient clinic based in Ballyshannon is depressing. The room was like a cell. It needs more comfortable chairs for a friendlier environment. Different colour paint would make it less institutionalised looking.

Despite the environment I felt I was given time and listened to.

Dear Raindrop

Thank you for taking the time to write to us to let us know about the outpatient clinic environment in Ballyshannon. I will work with the property manager for that area and with members of your community mental health team to see how the room could be made more friendly and welcoming.

Again, thank you for highlighting this issue
