Schoolboy, 12, with ADHD given ‘most likely to be distracted award’ with picture of zombie on it by teacher!  Derek Cooper was reduced to tears when he was given the mock award in front of classmates at Plainfield Central School in Connecticut.

The son of former President Patrick Hillery has resigned from his post as a psychiatrist in the HSE in protest at the state of mental health services which left him "ethically compromised".

Dr John Hillery worked in the mental health and intellectual disability services for nearly 30 years.

He described how in his own case the lack of a respite service for young men with autism, who suffer behavioural distress, left him with no option but to prescribe them medication to relieve this.
