WE CONTINUE to report on patients at Mill View Hospital in Hove for good reason.

The charity Mind states that approximately one in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year.

High-profile figures like the Duke of Sussex continue to raise awareness of the issue, hoping that we can one day be as open about mental health problems as we are physical ones.

But if we need help at Mill View we would be right to be anxious and the record in recent years has not been good.

The hospital simply must improve.

Back in March 2016 we reported on how Janet Muller was then the latest of five people to have died while under the care of the same ward there.

This newspaper saw damning documents raising serious questions about Mill View.

In 2015 Janet Muller was found dead after being burned alive in the boot of a car in Crawley when she should have been safe.

Danuta Corbett jumped to her death in November 2013, from the eighth floor flat window of her home while on escorted leave.

This prompted a coroner to step in to call for more safety measures.

In February, 2012, Brighton teacher Jessica Philpott, 38, hanged herself in the garden of Caburn Ward.

The changes as a result of an investigation included restricted garden access, a climb-proof fence and more training for staff.

The trust has always been quick to state they will improve.

We welcome the attitude of the bosses again today to try to prevent further tragedy as much as possible.
