Emily – published March 2016
Emily – as identified in the report – was described as a well-liked member of the community. Married to the same man for over 40 years, she had recently been seeking help due to his erratic and controlling behaviour. Although she actively sought and received support from several services, she was unable to find an acceptable solution to the problems she was experiencing at home. Emily took her own life the day before her 70th birthday.
