THE mother of a Huntingdon teenager who died last week has spoken of her shock at her daughters death. Sixteen-year-old Chantelle Garside was found unconscious in her bedroom by her mum, Jane Hector, on Tuesday, April 3. Paramedics were called but Chantelle was declared dead. She had killed herself. Miss Hector, 44, who lived with her daughter in Elm Close, said: Its not sunk in. It might be quite a few months until it does. Its happening but its not happening The house is just so quiet. Its affected everybody so badly. Theres nothing that people can say, no words can convey. She explained that before her death, Chantelle was being treated for depression by a psychiatrist at the Newtown Centre in Huntingdon. She said: She committed suicide; she had been suffering from depression for about a year. She just didnt seem to be getting any better. She didnt feel loved; she didnt feel that anybody cared. She thought she wasnt good enough to be in this world. She was being treated by the teenage mental health team, but they werent able to save her. A Facebook page in her memory has been visited by more than 1,100 people, all expressing their shock and grief at Chantelles death. Miss Hector said: I wish she could have known how many people cared and seen it. Its what depression does to you; it doesnt matter what people say its what you feel inside. We need to do more for teenagers who are suffering with depression. A number of people on the social networking site blamed bullying for Chantelles suicide but Miss Hector said: She was being bullied earlier on in her life but in the past few months she didnt go to school she just couldnt face it because of the depression. Bullying wasnt the full reason, just part of it. Miss Hector said she would remember her daughters big heart. She was funny and happy on her good days, she said. She was always messing about. She had such a big heart. If her friends needed her help, she would be there for them. This has left a massive gap in our lives. Im just trying to take stock. Chantelle was a Year 11 student at Hinchingbrooke School. News of her death was announced on the schools website by acting head teacher Di Beddow on Wednesday last week. In a statement, she said: The school is arranging counselling services to be available at the start of term and we will then discuss an appropriate tribute to her together. Our thoughts are with Chantelles family and close friends at this sad time. A police spokesman confirmed that they were called to an address in Elm Close, Huntingdon, by the ambulance service at 10.18pm. He said: The death is not being treated as suspicious and the matter has been passed to the coroner. Ambulance service spokesman Gary Sanderson said: We were alerted at 10.06pm and a girl was taken to Hinchingbrooke Hospital where sadly she died. Our thoughts are with her family at this tragic time.
