Flynn welcomes launch of 2019 Helplines Network
Sinn Féin MLA Órlaithí Flynn has welcomed the launch of the 2019 Helplines Network.
The party spokesperson for Mental Health and Wellbeing said:
“Last year there were over 450,000 calls to helplines in the north. These helplines cover more than just health. They include debt advice, welfare advice, bereavement support and a wide range of other services and issues.
“At a time of increasing pressure on services and waiting lists for treatments, these helplines provide support to those who need them, many provide a 24/7 service that really make a difference to people's lives.
“It is important to remember that if you need help, there are people out there willing to help.
"I also want to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of the thousands of volunteers and staff, without their efforts many of these life changing services and helplines wouldn't be able to provide hope to those in need.”
