Michelle Cooke Death – A 37-year-old mum-of-two identified as Michelle Cooke committed suicide after her mental health increased rapidly when she found a lump on her breast. Her mum, 67-year-old Janet Filipe revealed that Michelle had suffered with mental health issues since the age of 16 and she had previously tried to take her own life. Michelle was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and often turned to alcohol when she began to struggle, news outlets mentioned.
Michelle who was a resident of Crosby, found a lump on her breast on the 27th of July 2022 which led to her mental health spiraling as she feared the worst. According to reports from her mother, Michelle rang the doctors to try and make an appointment but committed suicide the next morning after a day and night of drinking. She leaves behind her two twins Jaimee and Tyler.
Her mother said in a report, “She had everything going for her but she had this lump on her breast on her mind. I remember she went to Turkey when she was pregnant and she said it was the last holiday before she had children with her and since her death, we’ve had people she met 12 years ago there ringing up about her. That’s the type of person she was, a beautiful, caring person. She would spend so much time helping people. She helped the homeless and cooked meals for them. That was her and that was my daughter.”
In a news release, it is confirmed that Michelle’s mum has called for more support for people who are suffering from poor mental health. She said that there weren’t enough services to help her daughter. She expressed her concern saying: “There’s not enough help for people like Michelle. There needs to be more support for people suffering from mental health problems.”
Michelle Cooke Obituary will be released by the family.
