The PEIU hosted two dialogue sessions with a wide range of interested stakeholders in March and May 2018.
While there is a large and deep literature on prevention and early interventions, the PEIU felt that it was important to engage with those who design and implement such interventions in Ireland to explore how their experiences resonate with the key elements of this literature.
