Katherine Palmer of The Daily Gazette and Essex County Standard reports:
A TEENAGER… should have been followed up by a mental health wellbeing service, an inquest has heard.
Harriet Philo-Powell died suddenly aged 18 at the end of February.
She had referred herself to a wellbeing service at the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust in December.
After having a phone assessment with the service, she was found to be a low to moderate case, suffering with moderately severe depression and mild anxiety.
She was meant to have a follow up session in February, which never happened.
