In 2007, he was diagnosed with ADHD and four years later, he was diagnosed with autism.
He had a severe form of eczema, an infection, lived with OCD from an early age and struggled with blemishes later in life.
Ms Theofen said her son’s mental health suffered a setback in April 2018 when police investigated the allegations – and when he was fired, James found out about police handling the case.
“They did not treat him like a weak person,” he said.
Following the accusation, James began abusing her, even though she had reduced her intake in the months leading up to his death.
Ms Theofen said her son suffered PTSD after the allegations, lost police confidence and suffered paralysis for fear of a verdict by others.
He also struggled when he and a friend were targeted by a group of knife-wielding men, and Mrs Theofaine again questioned the police response to the incident.
The court heard that after his 19th birthday, James struggled to access mental health services as he got older on the children’s mental health team.
He was considered ‘too complex’ for the adult community mental health team and was sent to an organization called Link UK, which was commissioned to run some mental health services.
But Mrs Theofaine felt it would not benefit her son, and in January 2020 she spoke with James, an extension nurse at Penn Trust, to Glenn Fletcher.
Ms Fletcher told the court she sent James to the Penn Trust’s “open door” team and arranged for a psychiatrist to see them.
By July, James’ case was dropped by the trust, as he was sent back to Link UK.
Dr Neil Rutherford, director of Link UK, told the court that his organization had already considered how complicated James was to help the organization a month ago. Her mother had raised the issue earlier.
Ms Fletcher said the Penn Trust had not been notified, and that if James had found out, an alternative solution would have been found.
Asked if she believed the supply had made a difference to James, Ms Fletcher said: “Yes.”
He added: “I have had plenty of time to consider James’ case. I have met him twice. James has spoken to me for a very good period of time.
“He was a very sweet man and a very gentle young man. I wish we had referred him to alcohol services. He was using alcohol and had taken drugs himself.”
Sheryl Henry read out a report to the community services manager – James, on the Hamwood, Middleton and Rochdale community mental health team.
The report also concludes that there is a difference in James’ care.
James was diagnosed with alcohol dependence and alcoholic hepatitis in the summer of 2020 and was referred to a turning point.
Mrs Theofaine told the court that her son was determined to stop drinking.
On October 8, James suffered from abdominal pain and was admitted to Fairfield Hospital for testing.
He was kept overnight and discharged the next day, but Mrs Theofaine said she looked ill when her son was picked up and “could not get in the car”.
Upon returning home, James suffered from back pain and vomiting, and Mrs. Theofaine feared for blood.
He was taken to Fairfield Hospital on October 9 and transferred to intensive care on October 11 before being transferred to Royal Oldham Hospital the next day.
Mrs Theofen told the court that at every stage, her son’s needs were not taken into account, as she was unable to spend time with him due to code restrictions.
The court heard that doctors had struggled to get James to get arterial lines to pump oxygen, and it was decided that he would be evicted.
On October 12, James “kept moving the oxygen tubes” and was advised to put him in an excited coma, which caused him to panic.
“He was terrified and his heart stopped,” said Mrs Theophane.
“We were allowed to stay with James for the last 10 minutes of his life.”
Medical experts tried to recover him manually before he turned to mechanical pressure, but failed and James died on October 12.
Mrs Theofaine questioned whether her son could still be alive if he had been admitted to Fairfield Hospital on October 9, and if he had allowed her to stay with him in the hospital, he would have remained calm.
But the court heard that since October 8, James’ test results showed nothing to indicate that he would develop a fatal pancreatitis the next day, and medical experts were satisfied that he could be discharged on October 9. Is.
Meanwhile, Dr Noman, who was on duty at Fairfield Hospital on October 8 and 9, said James was “very anxious about the discharge” to return home and that his test results were known at the time. It turns out they are fine.
And Dr. Ravishankar of the Royal Oldham Hospital defended James’ demand for eviction under intensive care.
“When someone is angry, it’s hard to control,” he said.
“It’s normal to take extreme care to control patients.”
An autopsy by Dr. Emil Salmo revealed that the medical cause of death was multiple organ failure due to acute pancreatitis, in which alcohol-related fatty liver disease was recorded as a major factor. Was
Coroner Matthew Cox concludes with natural causes.
Mrs Theofaine told the court that her son was an amazing man who had done his ‘fair share of work’, had a ‘marine life obsession’ and was interested in re-enacting the Vikings.
But her biggest passion was music, and Mrs. Theofaine said her son was talented in the field.
He added: “No one had a bad word to say about James. He had a good heart and soul.
“I really feel like James failed in the last few years of his life for a lot, for a lot of reasons.
“I tried hard to get help from mental health services but people seem to be more focused on alcohol dependence and eating disorders.
“It was very difficult to reduce alcohol dependence without input from mental health services.”
Speaking to Manchester Evening News after the hearing, his parents added: “He was amazing. He was very smart.
“He struggled but he was a good boy.
“He was a self-taught drummer, amazingly talented, kind and caring.
“He never bothered with anything when it came to the police. He just couldn’t believe it and he thought, ‘I didn’t do it so the police won’t think I Has done it.
“It shook his world.”
