Abstract: In this research bibliographic review, the analysis of two completely different mental health systems is carried out: Irish and Spanish, in addition to studying the role of Social Health Work in both countries. The discussion and the different lines of research derived from the results (presented and divided by themes: health systems, mental health and social health work) are based on the main objective of the review: "comparing mental health systems and the role of the health social worker in Spain and Ireland" and on the specific objectives: 1. Identifying the operation and characteristics of the Spanish and Irish Health System. 2. Defining mental health action policies in Spain and Ireland. 3. Analyzing Mental Health Social Work in Spain and Ireland. Taking into account the objectives of the review and the results achieved, it can be said that Ireland, with a greater investment in health care and a higher percentage of professionals, has a more ineffective health system than Spain. On the contrary, Spain allocates a higher percentage of the overall budget for health to mental health, with care and resources lower than the Irish. On the other hand, social health workers in mental health in Spain are governed by the biopsychosocial model having a broader literature of the profession; while in Ireland, the medical model is the prevailing in social health care by social workers, with little documentation of the professional field.
