Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has welcomed additional funding to keep Derry’s crisis intervention service open but said that a long-term solution is needed.
The Foyle MLA said;
“I welcome this funding to keep crisis intervention services open in Derry for a further six months but there needs to be a longer term approach.
“It is vital that crisis intervention and addiction services are available and they need to be supported and improved.
“A long-term strategy needs to be put in place to make these services sustainable for the future.
“I will be calling on the health minister to make this a priority so that the service can be available in the north west.”
