Sinn Féin attend special briefing hosted by 'Lifeline'

Sinn Féin MLA's Sue Ramsey and Jennifer McCann both attended a special briefing organised by 'Lifeline' at the Long Gallery in the Assembly this morning.

Lifeline is a service delivered by Contact Youth Counselling, which provides support for people in crisis or distress across the North of Ireland.

Commenting after the briefing, Assembly Health Committee member Sue Ramsey said,

"Lifeline is a vital service which provides much needed assistance to those suffering from distress, anxiety or seeking help for loved ones or themselves. Since its launch, lifeline has received over 30,000 calls; while this is encouraging in the sense that people are seeking help through this service, it also indicates the very real distress that people are enduring across the Six Counties.

Lifeline's work must be commended and I encourage anyone who feels they need to speak with someone about their concerns to get in touch with them on 0808 808 8000."
