Critical Voices Network Ireland arose out of a conference in November 2009, where Dr Michael Corry, a mental health activist, and opponent of bio-psychiatry, was a keynote speaker. He sadly passed away the following year after a short illness.

It was decided that the conferences should continue, partly due to the need to challenge psychiatry, and partly as an honourary tribute to the work and life of the late Dr. Michael Corry. In November 2010 the first CVNI conference took place, and since then they have become well known by those interested in creating  a better mental health system. CVNI also recognise the work and life of Dr. Corry's partner and colleague, Dr. Áine Tubridy. Together Michael and Áine devoted their lives to the cause for the rights of people experiencing emotional distress, and to reform mental health policy in Ireland. CVNI shares the vision of Dr. Michael Corry and Dr. Áine Tubridy.
