Shauneen Baker, Sinn Féin Councillor in North Belfast, has offered condolences following the tragic death of another resident.
Cllr Baker said:
“In light of another untimely death, mental health and emotional well-being provision is one of the key priorities for all political parties in North Belfast. We are working continually with statutory agencies and service providers to ensure that appropriate needs are met.
“Unfortunately, North Belfast has lost too many of its best and its brightest and we continue to work with individuals and families on a daily basis to assist them in accessing the appropriate care and services.
“If anyone is going through a difficult time we would urge them to remember that it is OK not to be OK and also urge them to reach out for help and support.
“There are many support organisations working across our local community. Sinn Féin will continue to support families and individuals and below is a list of professional service providers:
