176. To ask the Minister for Health if there have been additional resources allocated to the child and adolescent mental health services, CAMHS,, to help deal with the sharp increase in referrals to the service in Galway, especially in children being referred for ADHD; if there are plans for additional resources for complementary treatments for ADHD other than medicinal treatment to be allocated to CAMHS such as psychotherapy and behavioural therapy; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

As this is a service matter I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond directly to the Deputy as soon as possible.
