  1. Sounds like a possible suicide. If the poor young lady was a patient in their psychiatric facility they jolly better do an investigation and find out how it happened when she was in a protected environment.

    It’s high time we stopped sweeping mental health issues under the rug and started facing up to the problems that are hurting so many of our children, and making sure they get the help they need.

    One young life lost is one too many.
