The Critical Voices Network Ireland (CVNI) is a network for people from diverse backgrounds (people with self experience, carers, professionals, academics and interested others) who want an Irish mental health system which is not based on the traditional bio-medical model. This network provides an opportunity to share, discuss and debate critical perspectives on and beyond recovery.

It is centered around a Two-Day Conference organised by the Catherine McAuley School of Nursing and Midwifery & the School of Applied Social Studies University College Cork, in association with the Critical Voices Network Ireland.
