Our organisational strategy for 2018 to 2022 underlines our commitment to the development of our physical infrastructure, national network and operational excellence.
St Patrick’s Mental Health Services (SPMHS) is a leading independent, not-for-profit mental health service provider. Our services are grounded in human rights, and have a recovery ethos, empowering our service users to guide and control their own mental healthcare. We are recognised as a respected advocate for improved understanding of mental health and for seeking to address stigma and misunderstanding of mental health.
We are committed to the principles of recovery-focused care. We believe that treatment of people who experience mental health difficulties should be based on individually care plans which are grounded in evidence-based best practice, provided by qualified multidisciplinary teams, regularly reviewed, and suited to the person’s cultural background.

Our strategic objectives
Through Changing Minds. Changing Lives., we are committing to continuing to develop and grow our organisation, believing that we have a unique role to play in treating and supporting those who
experience mental health difficulties.
Our objectives are:
- Providing the highest quality mental healthcare
- Promoting mentally healthy living and mental health awareness across the community
- Advocating for the rights of those who experience mental health difficulties
- Supporting the investigation into and the enhancement of evidence-based knowledge regarding mental health and mental health difficulties
- Developing the competencies of those committing to work in mental health and of the organisations providing mental healthcare
- Enhancing partnership with service users.
The establishment of The Jonathan Swift Campus for Mentally Healthy Living is at the heart of our strategy. This national centre will be the first in the world to provide a full range of mentally healthy living initiatives for the general population. These initiatives include research, innovations in technology, advocacy centres and institutes, along with providing comprehensive, recovery-based treatment services for people with mental health difficulties.
Our off-campus service network will continue to be optimised. This will involve the consolidation of our Dean Clinics in Dublin, while expanding our model of Associate Dean Clinics. These developments will be supported by a range of initiatives to deliver operational excellence across the organisation and for services users and partners.
Alongside significant developments in infrastructure, facilities and services, Changing Minds. Changing Lives. is underpinned by a number of priorities to drive operational excellence across all aspects of SPMHS and to increase the reach and benefits of our approach to mental health.
