Matthew was sectioned in November 2012 into the Linden Center in Chelmsford, Essex.
Within 7 days of admission Matthew was dead.
A young man with a bright future ahead of him. Two years for an inquest to happen in 2015. The inquest ruling inconclusive.
Left as an open Narrative…’Matthew having been failed multiple times, by those meant to have been caring for him.’
Melanie knew Matthew was not alone and the search for other failed families proved so.
Melanie says, ‘So many have died in the community and as inpatients with repeat failings being uncovered, it must stop’
Melanie has been campaigning for a Public Inquiry in to the North Essex Partnership Trust for over 5 years now.
Her fight was taken to Downing Street, where she was told by Nadine Dorries MP, ‘we do not hold Public Inquiries into one death!’.
Melanie is now joined by multiple families and this is a shout out to others.
‘We are calling on families who had loved ones die under the care of North Essex Partnership Trust , either as inpatients or in the community. The NEP trust has been merged since 2017, but was covering Chelmsford, Colchester, Harlow etc from the years 2000 to April 2017.’
As a group we are holding a peaceful memorial/protest with various speakers in attendance, on the 22nd August 2020 – 11am in Central Park, Chelmsford, Essex and we would love you to join us.
‘If you know of any family who lost some one in those years under the care of this trust, I urge you to please get in touch’.
PEACEFUL MEMORIAL TO REMEMBER THOSE FAILED BY ESSEX MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES AND PROTEST FOR CHANGES NEEDED FOR OTHERS.
Organised by a group families united in their push for a Public Inquiry into the North Essex Partnership University Trust after the deaths of their loved ones, whilst pushing for changes to the community and inpatient care available for all.
The Elderly, kids, young adults, send, autism, mental health, pda, adhd, whatever, whomever, you all deserve good quality, kind, compassionate care.
We shouldn’t have to fight for it, but sadly we do.
Join us and hear different speakers (details to follow) and then we will unite to walk from Central Park to Oakland’s Park.
(We will meet behind the skate park, in Central Park)
