Mother-of-three, 25, hanged herself hours after mental health crisis team failed to show up
A mother-of-three was found dead just hours after a mental health team allegedly failed to visit her at home for an emergency appointment.
Natasha Adams, 25, a mother of three young boys, was discovered hanged at her flat in Solihull, West Midlands, on August 12.
Her family claims the trust arranged for someone from the mental health team to visit her flat the following day but nobody showed up.

The Solihull and Birmingham Mental Health Hospital Trust, which operates the Care Home Team, sent its condolences to Natasha's family and said 'a full and thorough investigation is underway'.
Natasha's mother Marie said someone was eventually sent out to see her daughter at 11am the next day (Friday, August 13) by which time she had already been found dead.
Marie told Birmingham Live her daughter had gone to hospital with 'severe anxiety' after deciding to drive back to Birmingham while on a family holiday to Scotland with her parents and three children.
She said Natasha attended the hospital late on the Wednesday, and was discharged approximately three hours later after being told someone from the mental health crisis team would visit her the following morning.
However, according to Marie, nobody arrived until 11am on the Friday, hours after she died.
The Solihull and Birmingham Mental Health Hospital Trust, which operates the Care Home Team, said: 'Our thoughts are with Natasha’s family at this sad and difficult time.
'A full and thorough investigation is underway. Natasha’s family will be involved and will have the opportunity to have any questions and concerns addressed as part of that process.
'Until that investigation is completed, and the coroner’s inquest is held, we cannot comment further. Our sympathies are with all of her friends and family at this sad time.'
Marie said Natasha's mental health problems dated back to her school days, which her mother believes were 'triggered' by bullying and heart surgery she underwent while at school.
After leaving school two years early she went to Solihull College where, pregnant with her eldest child, she qualified as a level three hairdresser.
Marie said she worked for a hairdresser 'for a while and loved it'.
However, her mental health problems continued into adulthood, according to Marie, before she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2020.
