Inquest rules Chantelle Garside took her own life
AN inquest into Chantelle Garside’s death ruled that she took her own life.
Chantelle hanged herself in her bedroom in her home in Elm Close, Huntingdon, on April 3 and was found by her mother Jane Hector.
Magpas Helimedix and an ambulance crew were called to the home at 10.18pm and attempted to resuscitate her for 34 minutes but she was pronounced dead later that day.
An inquest at Lawrence Court, Huntingdon, heard today (Thursday) that she had been diagnosed with emerging personality disorder and had received cognitive therapy in the months leading up to her death.
The inquest also heard how the Hinchingbrooke School student was learning how to play the piano and hoped to start a childcare course in September.
Chantelle’s consultant at the Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMH) service, Satha Abraham, said that she was an insightful girl and she had been badly affected by the suicide of one of her friends.
South and west Cambridgeshire coroner David Morris ruled that the 16-year-old took her own life while experiencing acute adolescent difficulties.
