A move away from an over-reliance on prescribing medicine to deal with mental health issues is being recommended by an Oireachtas committee.
The Joint Committee on the Future of Mental Health has made more than 30 recommendations to improve mental health services here.
Members of the committee want to see more of a focus on counselling and talk therapy.
Other recommendations include seeking more funding and more access to services for Travellers.
The report also calls for training for health workers to make them aware of issues facing Travellers, LGBTI people and migrants.
A specialist health unit for transgender people is encouraged as well.
The committee wants to see a realistic plan and time-frame for the provision of 24/7 crisis intervention teams.
It calls for an examination to see if online mental health services could be made available.
The committee also wants mental health training to be carried out among all disciplines in the health service.
It recommends that workers be given special subsidised accommodation to ease the cost of living, as part of efforts to address the wider issue of staffing and recruitment in the health service,
The report will be launched in Leinster House this afternoon.
