Flynn welcomes progress Protect Life 2 Strategy
Sinn Féin MLA Órlaithí Flynn has welcomed the announcement of stakeholder meetings on the Protect Life 2 Strategy.
The West Belfast MLA said:
"This is good news from the Public Health Agency (PHA) on looking to move the Protect Life 2 Strategy forward.
“Sinn Féin have been in contact with the Department and the PHA to ensure that progress is maintained in delivering to strategy.
"As chair of the Assembly's all-party group on Suicide Prevention, I ensured that the first meeting was to get an update on the strategy to date and we received good indications that a lot of the feedback and suggestions where being taken forward.
"This recent announcement is the next stage and I would encourage all organisations and individuals interested to get in touch with the PHA.
"It is extremely important that as many community and voluntary groups get involve and attend one of the sessions. It is only through greater partnership working between all agencies and groups that we create better services, which deliver better health outcomes."
