With public offerings too slow to be useful and the private market too costly, adequate mental heath care is out of reach for many who need it. In Ireland, government referral for mental health care can take eighteen months or more, and a single session through a private provider can cost upwards of €100. Complicating matters, the Irish Health Service Executive (HSE) is designed inefficiently and jealously guarded by civil servants—typically HSE psychologists see four to five patients over three to four days, an amount drastically below capacity.
