West Belfast Mental Health award can be basis for other projects

28 April, 2004


Sinn Fein Health Spokesperson, Upper Bann MLA John O'Dowd has congratulated the Whiterock Health Centre in West Belfast for winning the DHSSPS Cash Grant Scheme for their young men's' mental promotion project.

Mr O'Dowd said:

"The issue of young men's' mental health has become increasingly acute, especially in areas such as North and West Belfast where suicide rates have become tragically high.

"Whiterock Health Centre deserves our thanks for taking this initiative and in trying to tackle the problem at its root. It is my hope that this award will enable their sterling work to be used in other areas." ENDS
