Stories like this are exactly why I will never, EVER give up talking and campaigning and SHOUTING about mental health, my experiences and what happened to me. How dare they not listen!?
It makes no sense to me that a woman who was known to try and commit suicide was left alone in a cubicle, and only classed as a “moderate self-harm” risk. A very few people will listen, but as I’ve experienced, mostly nobody wants to know. Suicide is STILL not taken seriously. It’s seen as something that only a few people do, and that few people attempt.
Anyone is at risk. Anyone can develop depression. Anyone can have a mental health issue. This is not a problem attached to the few- the many can suffer too.
