To ask the Minister for Health when can the National Mental Health Competency Framework be expected to be completed and implemented.
The COVID-19 Mental Wellness Taskforce (CoMWT) was formed to address the psychosocial impact of COVID-19 pandemic on the population.
One of the recommendations of the CoMWT is to develop a National Mental Health Competency Training Framework, which will align existing mental health trainings towards a common set of training standards and competencies expected of professionals and para-professionals who support persons with mental health conditions.
This recommendation has been accepted by the new Interagency Taskforce on Mental Health and Well-being, and will be further worked on under the auspices of the new Taskforce. More details will be provided when ready.
