For a former patient of mine

Recommended Posts

beatitude

Today I found out that one of my former patients has died by suicide. The last time I saw her was three years ago, when she was fifteen years old. She walked out of the teenagers' mental health ward after nearly a year as an inpatient, feeling so much better and bubbling over with enthusiasm about going home. She was one of the patients I worked with most closely and I've often wondered how she's getting on. It's a horrible shock to learn that she has died. Please pray for her soul, for her family, and for all young people who have problems like hers. Pray also for the staff who care for them, that they may always be insightful and compassionate and find the right words to help.
