The wife of a man who mysteriously passed away has spoken of his strength and she has called for more fund input in mental health services.
Aaron Unsworth a 28-year-old man with two children, was found dead at his home in Chipping UK, on Thursday, July 18.
His wife, Sabrina Unsworth, said Aaron was a ‘cheerful soul with a disturbed mind’ after his death.
She said: “Where do I even start?, Aaron loved almost everything about nature, down to the tiniest insect. So I’ll try to do my best to describe him in the best way I can. “Picture a valley of mountains, next to a calm, peaceful lake. There’s an endless pine forest and a few birds flying overhead. A beautiful place, a beautiful soul. There’s a thunderstorm coming, you can smell it”.
“An intense bolt of thoughts, of feelings so strong and powerful, almost unavoidable. But you stand there, you wait, and you embrace it. The rain pours down, the lightning and thunder lights up the sky but you stand there and just let yourself feel it all.
“That’s how I picture Aaron. He was aware of it all, so aware and connected to everything. He felt so deeply, filled with passion for the things and people he cared for and loved. He just struggled to express what he was feeling in a way that most people would understand.
“But he did love his children more than anything else. That love will only increase, it will remain very much alive in their hearts like food for their souls.”
Sabrina said that Aaron had tried to get help for some time leading up to his death and that she believed there needed to be ‘massive changes’ made to the way mental health problems are addressed.
“Aaron and I sought help for his mental health for years, and he had only just been put on the waiting list for therapy, a couple of weeks before he died.
“I firmly believe that more help needs to be available to those in need, but unfortunately there is still a severe lack of available resources. Big changes need to be made, and I will never stop fighting.” Aaron is a former student at Brownedge St Mary’s High School in Bamber Bridge and Runshaw College in Leyland. He is survived by Sabrina and their two children, Niamh Ava-Rose and Damian Eli
