A young mother-of-two took her own life just hours after sharing a video of her laughing and playing with her young children.

Jade Roberts, 26, from Knotty Ash, Liverpool, had shared footage of her and her children playing in the garden hours before leaving her last words to loved ones.

Her heartbroken family described her as ‘an unbelievable mother’ to her two sons, who are aged one and two.

Ms Roberts’s cousin Karl Thomas, 33, said she ‘would do anything for anyone’ and had ‘a heart of gold.’

The young mother suffered from anxiety and relatives say they were unaware of the true extent of her battle with mental health until her passing.

A few hours before her death in April, Karl said Ms Roberts had sent him a video of herself playing with her children in the garden. 

Although she wasn’t pictured in the shot, Ms Roberts can be heard laughing in the background as her young boys, aged one and two, spent time outside.

Her cousin Karl described her as an ‘unbelievable mother’ who spent every minute of her day dedicated to her children.

Ms Roberts’ family has chosen to share her story in order to raise awareness of ill mental health, and encourage others not to suffer in silence.  

Karl said: ‘She had all the people around her in the world but it just shows you, you can be surrounded by people and still feel alone.
