Abstract: Following research conducted by Cavan Monaghan Mental Health Service, results identified inadequacies in service provision, evident in high admission, readmission and certification rates. This paper will focus on the fundamental reorganisation of service structure and delivery, which was based on whole systems thinking. An understanding will be gained of the strategic shift that occurred in terms of where we were, where we wanted to go and how we were going to get there and also the effectiveness of this service provision in meeting the needs of clients, their families and carers. It will also show how novel services can be established given vision, commitment and managerial expertise.
