Motion: Mental Health Crisis Support – Tuesday 15 September 2020

MLAs Alex Easton and Paula Bradley propose a motion that the Assembly recognises the importance of collaborative and well-resourced services which support those in mental health crisis across Northern Ireland, highlights the success of the Multi Agency Triage Team (MATT) partnership between the health and social care sector, the PSNI and the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service in providing on-the-spot mental health support to people in emotional crisis and calls on the Minister of Health to commit urgently to the expansion and funding of this project to all Health and Social Care Trusts.
