Brighton Man Alleges Eviction from St Patrick's Nightshelter for Suicide Bid

St Patrick's Nightshelter, Hove
A Brighton man has alleged that staff at St Patrick's Nightshelter have evicted him on the grounds that he attempted to hang himself in his room. The man was recently informed of the death of his 7-year-old daughter and had hit 'rock bottom'.

In attempting to hang himself, he damaged some property in the room. His suicide bid was not met with compassion, he alleges, but was served with an immediate eviction, making him homeless at a time of deep personal trauma.
