first_imgRebeccaTHE mother of a young Donegal woman who took her own life in America two weeks ago has appeared on national radio hoping to raise awareness on mental health.Carmel Lynch, who has been a psychiatric nurse and suicide counsellor for the past 20 years, is struggling to come to terms with the death of her own child.Letterkenny girl Rebecca Molloy was just 26 when she took her own life in New Hampshire. Speaking on The Colette Fitzpatrick Show on Newstalk, her mother made an emotional appeal for people to seek help if they feel troubled.She said: “Rebecca was a very strong-willed, caring, considerate person.“Since she passed away so many people have spoken about how caring she was. From an early age she suffered from depression and anxiety.“She had her good days and bad days, but had more good ones than bad. “Maybe she thought that moving to America would change her life. She got a job with a railroad and was doing fantastic.”Carmel spoke to Rebecca on the morning of the day she died, and said there was no indication anything was wrong.She added: “I rang her nearly every day. She had a long commute to work and I would speak to her.“I called her that morning and she seemed fine.”However, later that day Carmel got the awful news that her daughter had died. She said: “When I got the news I was crying and was really angry as I did not believe it was true. Even when she was really low she always said she would never harm herself while I was alive. I could not take it in.”Carmel stressed how important it is for people to talk to someone if they are feeling down.She said: “I want people in trouble to seek help. Kids keep everything bottled up. Talk to somebody. There’s always somebody there that can help when you’re in a dark place.”MUM OF TRAGIC DONEGAL SUICIDE GIRL: ‘WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH’ was last modified: September 21st, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Carmel Lynchdonegalletterkennymental healthRebecca Molloysuicide awarenesslast_img read more
