Children in need of mental health support can’t wait – Flynn

Sinn Féin MLA Órlaithí Flynn has said children in need of mental health support can’t wait and urged the DUP to get back to work.

The West Belfast MLA said:

“Children in need of mental health support are left to suffer as frontline services are under attack from eye watering Tory cuts.

“Today I met the Department of Health to try and push plans to tackle the growing crisis within children’s mental health services.

“The new Mental Health plan would provide a pathway to improve the waiting lists and treatments available, so urgently needed by families struggling to get help.

“But the onus is on the DUP to end their blockade of the Executive of the institutions and give the health service the political leadership it so crucially needs.

“Children and their families can’t wait a day longer.”

The third and final day of a fantastic Ploughing. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Sinn Féin tent for a chat over the last few day.

Sinn Féin in Government would stand up and ensure a future for our family farmers and deliver a fair deal for rural Ireland.


It was totally irresponsible for the Minister for Health to travel abroad possibly knowing the scandal at Temple Street Children’s Hospital was going to break.

This scandal raises serious questions around transparency, discipline, oversight & clinical governance. @davidcullinane
