“Everyone said, ‘In there at least she’s going to get help’ but she didn’t get anything at all.”
Amy’s mother on her removal to the Priory Hospital Ticehurst House, in August 2012.
3 months later 14 year old Amy was dead.
Amy was a troubled, confused teenager, but why ?
Her mother described her as having ‘ a warm heart and a great sense of humour.’
’ She never liked to see people treated unfairly and would be the first to stand and say ‘that’s not right’’
But the tragic irony was, that Amy herself was treated beyond unfairly, and no one, systemically, could stand up for her.
Amy’s forthrightness and conviction, contributed to her CAMH’s diganoses of oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), defined as a pattern of angry/irritable mood, argumentative/defiant behaviour.
And Conduct disorder(CO) a range of antisocial types of behaviour displayed in childhood or adolescence.
