Health Minister Edwin Poots has paid a private visit to our new supported living for people with severe and enduring mental health problems at 53 Ardglass Road, Downpatrick.
He was impressed with the facility and the way the new tenants have adapted to life in the community, and said it was an example he would like to see replicated in other areas. He spent almost two hours chatting to staff and tenants.[caption id="attachment_47086" align="aligncenter" width="550"] Pictured at 53 Ardglass Road were Aoife Cunningham (Specialist Occupational Therapist), Joe O’Neill (Community Mental Health Services Manager), Rosie Shannon (Mental Health Staff Nurse), Ann Hanna (Manager), Edwin Poots (Health Minister), Brendan Whittle (Director Adult Services) & Don Bradley (Asst.
