dc.description.abstract Introduction: Youth mental health (YMH) and addiction issues are a core component of the problems facing those living in urban areas of social deprivation in Ireland, in particular South Inner City Dublin and Limerick City 1,2. These local contexts, with histories of drug addiction, violence, family dissolution, suicide and gang-related criminality lend themselves to promote further criminal and addictive behaviour, as well as increased stress and decreased protective factors such as social support and education. Early intervention is considered a ‘best buy’ in mental health, but the current Irish system struggles to engage with young people and offer them appropriate treatment. en_US
