In 2015, Ireland lost eight people a week to suicide, and it is widely accepted that we are not doing enough to help our citizens who are suffering from depression, bipolar disorder, alcoholism and many other mental illnesses.

Mental health needs to be at the very forefront of the national conversation, and improving access to mental health services needs to be at the forefront of the national agenda - starting as early as the primary school classroom, and reaching into our health services, homes and workplaces.

These points and more were made by our panel at the Royal College of Physicians on Monday, before the crowd broke up into smaller panels to discuss the finer details of mental health services in Ireland and how they affect society.

Check out the full panel discussion below:

LYONS Tea has been at the centre of conversations in Irish households for generations. Many a problem has been shared over a cup of their tea. That's why LYONS is delighted to support Pieta House to raise awareness for the services they provide and to get the nation talking about mental health issues. Pieta House offers free help and support for people experiencing suicidal ideation, suicidal bereavement or engaging in self-harm.
