Almost 800 children in Cork and Kerry on mental health service waiting list

A Cork TD is calling on the Government to take action to tackle the issue.

There's a huge crisis in the Cork and Kerry region for children waiting to be seen by the Child and Adolescent Mental Health service.

That's according to Cork Fianna Fail TD Michael Moynihan who says the Government are not taking the crisis serious.

His comments come after it was revealed almost 800 children in the Cork and Kerry region are waiting to be seen by the CAMHS, with 120 of those waiting more than 18 months for an appointment.

Speaking to RedFM News, Fianna Fail TD Michael Moynihan says the waiting list is not acceptable.
