FAMILY TRAGEDY

A TRAGIC mum-of-two took her own life just hours after playing with her kids in the garden.

Jade Roberts, 27, sent a video with her two boys, aged one and two, to her cousin before she was discovered dead in April.

She had been suffering from anxiety but her heartbroken family were not aware how serious the problem was, Liverpool Echo reports.

Cousin Karl Thomas, 33, said: "She had all the people around her in the world but it just shows you, you can be surrounded by people and still feel alone.

"It's so important that people do talk about how they are feeling instead of bottling things up.

"There need to be more platforms for people to do this I think, now more than ever.

"People have always been suffering but I think now it's coming from all angles and you're hearing about it more and more."

YOU'RE NOT ALONE

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society - from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others... You're Not Alone.

If you, or anyone you know, needs help dealing with mental health problems, the following organisations provide support:

Karl described Jade as an "unbelievable mum" who spent "every minute" of the day dedicated to her children.

He also said the mum had the "biggest heart of gold" and was always helping others.

A GoFundMe page has now been set up to raise money for Jade's two sons.

Organiser Madina Wady said: "As we all know mental health is becoming more and more common in every day life, it is nothing to be ashamed of it is affecting most of us daily.

"This page is to raise money for a beautiful soul who battled so hard through her own pain and mental health until she couldn’t take anymore.

"Her beautiful boys are 2 little pieces of jade that everyone will cherish and treasure but they sadly don’t have their beautiful mommy anymore.

"What ever funds are raised for the boys can be put away for them or go towards little treats and days out just to put a smile on their little faces."
