Mother-of-two hung herself after being bullied by colleagues
A nurse, who was a mother to two children, took her own life after her co-workers at the hospital constantly bullied her.
30-year-old Rhian Collins was reportedly picked on and sworn at by her colleagues at a mental health hospital where she used to work before her death.
According to her family, her fellow staff intentionally made it hard for Collins to function normally when she was at work.
The Daily Mail revealed that her colleagues also gave her the worst night shifts on purpose.

During investigations, Sergeant Nia Lambley said to the media outlet, “She was having issues at work. She was being sworn at, bullied and believed she was continually given the worst shifts on the ward”
Because of the on-going bullying, Collins was said to have become “obsessed with her appearance and she would go to the gym four times a day.”
Apart from heading to the gym, she was also said to have been taking slimming pills.
The family explained to the authorities that Collins was trying hard to deal with the stress and with the long, unsociable night shifts. They said she was trying to find a new job.
Collins was an employee at Cefn Coed Hospital in South Wales, which specializes in mental health care.
One month before she ended her life in March 2018, Collins was said to have been looking exhausted, according to her relatives.
They also said she was becoming distant to her children and the rest of her family.
David Reed, Collins’s fiancé, said she had talked about ending her own life, but she said she was too guilty about leaving their two children, as well as abandoning her shifts at the hospital.
Reed was the one who called the police and a locksmith after Collins failed to answer her phone or the door.He was supposedly dropping off their two children in Collins’s home at the time.
When they were able to open the door, Reed rushed in and found out that Collins had hanged herself.
The coroner confirmed that her death was intentional suicide.
