SDLP Mental Health spokesperson, Cllr Cara Hunter has welcomed the establishment of an Executive working group on mental wellbeing and resilience.

“I warmly welcome the strong, cross-party commitment to tackling our mental health crisis that was expressed today, following a special meeting of the Executive, around the planning of public services.”

“Mental health is an issue that affects people in all walks of life, right across the North. It is too complex and broad to fall to one Minister or department; it must be a priority right across government.”

“It is very welcome news that the entire Executive has committed to making suicide prevention, mental wellbeing and resilience a government priority and I look forward to supporting their important work in any way I can.”
