A Huddersfield family has been left heartbroken after their 16-year-old son took his own life after struggling for years with his mental health.

Finn Hall, who had lived in Huddersfield most of his life until his family moved to Keighley last year, was hoping to spend his life helping others. He was studying health and social care with aspirations of working with children with learning difficulties.

On Friday, November 18, his mum, Hannah, went up to his bedroom. She was devastated to find that after years of struggling with his mental health, Finn had tragically [redacted] himself.

Finn was in the process of transitioning from female to male after coming out to his family earlier this year. [His aunt] said Finn had started struggling with his mental health at the age of 11 when he began battling an eating disorder. From around the age of 13, Finn was struggling so much he began to self-harm.

He was hospitalised several times, and his family were desperate to find him support. But Finn continued to struggle.

Finn was the second of five children, spent much of his free time volunteering at a local youth club and working as a carer. He regularly took part in raising money for the youth club.
