The Mental Health Commission has reported a number of improvements at Teach Aisling in Castlebar, following its latest inspection.

Teach Aisling is a 10-bed approved HSE centre in Castlebar which provides long-stay care for residents with mental illness and for mental health rehabilitation and recovery.

An earlier inspection last March raised serious concerns - particularly in relation to the availability of drinking water for residents, as well as recreational activity, therapeutic services and programmes for residents, restrictive practices and staffing.

A focused inspection was carried out on the 9th August, with significant improvements reported.

The inspection found Teach Aisling was compliant in five areas examined, and non-compliant in one area, which related to the premises itself.
