Saint John of God Lucena Clinic Services

The Lucena Clinic services are delivered via our 5 clinics in Rathgar, Tallaght, Dun Laoghaire, Bray, and Wicklow. The Wicklow team also provide a service in Arklow. Each clinic has multidisciplinary teams consisting of Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Social Workers, Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists, Clinical Nurse Specialists and Social Care staff. There is a Day Hospital in the grounds of the Rathgar clinic.

The Mission of each Lucena Clinic is to provide a specialised and comprehensive mental health service to the children and families of Dublin South, parts of Dublin West and
Co.Wicklow.

Lucena Clinic strives to deliver its service in accordance with the guidelines specified in A Vision for Change policy.

A Vision for Change
In 2006 the Government published a report of the expert group on mental health policy. This report is called A Vision for Change. One of the recommendations of this report is that mental health services for children should be provided by multidisciplinary teams. In effect this means that each team is made up of clinicians from different disciplines who all work together to provide a range of therapeutic interventions for each child. Usually a Multidisciplinary Team is made up of the clinicians in the following areas:

1. Consultant Psychiatrist
2. Psychiatrist in training.
3. Nurse
4. Psychologist
5. Social Worker
6. Occupational Therapist
7. Speech and Language Therapist
8. Social Care Worker.
