The Mental Health Commission (MHC) is an independent statutory body established in April 2002 under the provisions of the Mental Health Act 2001 (“the Act”). The principal functions of the Commission, as specified in the Act, are to promote, encourage and foster the establishment and maintenance of high standards and good practices in the delivery of mental health services and to take all reasonable steps to protect the interests of persons detained in approved centres. The Commission is also empowered to undertake such activities, as it deems appropriate to foster and promote these standards and practices.  The Assisted Decision Making (Capacity) Act 2015 provides for the establishment of the Decision Support Service (DSS) within the Mental Health Commission to support decision-making by and for adults with capacity difficulties and to regulate individuals who are providing support to people with capacity difficulties. The Act reforms Ireland’s capacity legislation which has been in place since the 19th century. It establishes a modern statutory framework to support decision-making by adults who have difficulty in making decisions without help. At this exciting time the Commission is seeking suitably qualified persons at Clerical Officer level. These roles provide vital input and support to the MHC and the DSS in achieving our goals. This is your opportunity for an interesting career.   A panel may be formed from this competition.
