Health for kids
A NEW specialist clinic dealing in the area of child and adolescent mental health services is to launch in Arklow in early 2009.
The Lucena Clinic will cater for young people referred from their GP for various reasons including behavioural difficulties, ADHD and childhood depression and anxiety.
According to Cllr. Pat Fitzgerald there are no outstanding obstacles in setting up the service and that the Arklow clinic will deal in the say way as Bray and Wicklow with referrals being dealt with locally within a short period.
