‘Daddy isn’t coming back’: surviving my partner’s suicide
It's time to be more open about severe mental illness. On an exceptionally cold, icy night in 2013, Manuela Saragosa's husband took his own life. Eight years have passed, and yet she still feels the horror, grief, anger and shame that has followed her ever since. Discussing mental health has become more accepted in recent years, yet shadows are still cast over illnesses such as psychosis and schizophrenia. By sharing her story, Manuela hopes to change this.
