Story

On 6th November Matthew took his own life. After suffering many years with mental health. I do feel he was sadly let down by mental health. I wish to campaign for mental health and raise awareness, while also helping anyone I can personally.

I am already involved with a local counsellor and we are on the way to be able to help pay for theraphy for people needing this. Its important to talk and I want to get Matthews Voices heard as well as others.

Matthew was the only daddy Sienna has known, bringing her up from the age of 11 months. Shes now 5. They adored each other and its so hard to see a 5 year old draw pictures of her daddy most days. Life was very hard dealing with Matthews mental health which at the time I didnt really understand, its only now its to late looking back all the signs were there. For Matthew I want his voice heard now along with his family. I hope we can help another family even one would be an acheivement.

We are setting up a foundation in Matthews memory - Matthews Voice, through this I want to help the people in Essex dealing with what I went through and the grief process after But also help people and talk and get there voices heard dealing with what Matthew dealt with.

Although so sad what has happened me and Sienna we have great memories with Matthew and I wish to keep sharing these fantastic memories.

I would like to raise money to have a caravan at Mersea Island in Colchester, for local families who need a break and dealing with similar situations which we did as a family. We spent many a weekend here as a family. We have amazing photos and memories. I want to help people make new memories and give a little hope to them about the future. A small break can make a big difference.

We will raise money throughout the year at many different events and welcome anyone to join us or who would like to help.

I will create more awareness by working with Schools, press and local counselling in setting up support groups. Mental Health is such a big thing and I want to help even just one person.

The website will be promoted and user friendly for all dealing with Mental Health and Suicide loss. From a family left as many, a little more support is needed.

I hope you can help in any way many thanks for your time
