Sinn Féin MLA for Foyle Karen Mullan who is seeking to raise awareness for Parentline during Mental Health Awareness week has said: “I was happy to support the services of Parentline along with fellow Sinn Féin MLA's this week. Parentline will provide a much needed support network for parents, carers and family members throughout the North, it is an incredibly professional service which positively promotes and helps families wellbeing. “It is clear to be seen that the background work has been done which shows the need for such a service for families who feel they are under pressure and have nowhere to turn to.” Commenting in her role as Sinn Féin Education spokesperson Karen Mullan added: "Parents can struggle financially, emotionally and socially when their children are at school, it is important that these parents have an avenue to turn to if they ever feel like they need some guidance, motivation or confidence" "I would encourage any parent struggling to avail of this service that a confidential listening ear can make all the difference. The service is open Monday to Thursday from 9am – 9pm, Friday 9am – 5pm, Saturday from 9am – 1pm and you can call free on 0808 8020 400 or chat online at
