Sinn Féin's Pat Sheehan has welcomed the investment of £750,000 by health minister Michelle O'Neill into suicide prevention and mental health programmes. 

The Sinn Féin health spokesperson said; 

"I welcome this announcement from my party colleague and health minister of an additional  £750,000 investment in suicide prevention and mental health programmes. 

"More than 60 groups right across the north will access this funding to address specific health needs for mental and emotional wellbeing, suicide prevention, drugs and alcohol support services and support for vulnerable groups. 

"This investment will ensure that positive mental health programmes, which are community-based and delivered by local organisations remain a priority. 

"This is yet another example of a Sinn Féin minister making a positive difference to the lives of people in the community."
