Professor Simon Baron-Cohen declares his support for a Statutory Public Inquiry in to Essex Mental Health Services

“Melanie and her team have worked tirelessly for a decade to have a Statutory Enquiry into what led to the unexplained and tragic deaths of their loved ones. I support their efforts for all of the evidence and testimonies to become transparent, so that the lessons can be learnt urgently, including how we can reduce future risk to suicide, and other causes of death, in those who are vulnerable by virtue of their mental health and disability.”
