Late Shante

JUST IN: Pretty Upcoming Actress Commits Suicide An aspiring teen actress who suffered from low self-esteem was found hanged in her wardrobe by her father, an inquest heard. Shante Stephenson, 19, from east London, took her own life a week after being assessed as ‘no longer in crisis’ by the NHS. She had low self esteem about her career and particularly her appearance, frequently looking at social media sites and comparing herself to her peers, the Walthamstow Coroner’s Court heard. Shante was supposed to have medication delivered to her the day she died that was two days late. The inquest also heard Shante had made an attempt on her life a year before her death before being referred to Impart, a mental health crisis team at Waltham Forest NHS Trust. Dr William Travers, a consultant psychiatrist with the Impart home treatment team, met Shante seven days after her attempted suicide on July 18. Dr Travers said in the court: “It [the overdose] seemed to have been triggered by an experience she had performing a role in a theatre show case, she didn’t think she performed it well, and she was dwelling on it, replaying it over and over in her mind. “After it she had spoken to her friend and reported a feeling of hopelessness during the phone call – that is when she developed the idea.” He was also told by Shante that at the age of 11 she was focused on ‘not being good enough’ regarding on her career ambitions and ‘her physical appearance’. Shante was said to have been continuously comparing herself to her peers and frequently looking at multiple social media sites. Dr Travers said: “She told me she was concerned about her weight, which was normal, but that she used to weigh more and wanted to lose more.” The court has heard that Shante had tried to hang herself at home after a family argument when she was 12. She was referred to the experts after her second suicide attempt on June 4. READ ALSO!
