I join my colleagues in welcoming the representatives of WHO and commending the people of Cavan-Monaghan on the good work they are doing. The service is often held up as an example for how good mental health services could be provided in the regions. The witnesses indicated that the number of migrants increased by 5 million people since 2005. What is the total number? Can they outline any best practice in other countries that they would like to implement as part of this project? I hope Ireland can take a lead in helping on this project. Is the funding adequate to makinig a serious impression on the challenge that the team faces?
