Family of woman who killed herself feel 'failed'

The family of a woman who killed herself last year say they feel failed by Jersey's mental health service and are making an application to the Chief Coronor for a serious case review.

Monika Le Seelleur suffered depression for years and last summer attempted suicide several times.

Her husband Andy says it took too long for the island's psychiatric unit to take her into care and were far too quick to discharge her.

Health and Social Services also failed to disclose her suicidal history to the homeless shelter they placed her in for her recovery.

Less than 3 weeks later, she ended her life.
