Swansea, Wales – We have been following the story of Claire Dyer very closely here at Autism Daily Newscast, the young woman with autism who was sectioned under the Mental Health Act and sent to a medium secure mental health unit in Brighton. We last reported on this story back in August and it can be read here.

We have now learned that Claire has returned back home after her Section was lifted.

She told The South Wales Evening Post:

“Her mental health section has been removed, and she is staying at home with us, having support until her new placement is sorted. She is so, so pleased, and we are all over the moon. It’s been hell for three months since she was sent to Brighton, and has been a long roller coaster of a ride.”

Since August Catherine, her husband Mark and two other children Andrew, 15, and Nicola, 19 have traveled every Sunday to visit Claire in Brighton  on a  230 mile trip.

Catherine  told that she could not understand why a vulnerable young adult would be placed so far away from family.

She shared the good news on Facebook, posting:

“It’s only just sinking in…….BUT CLAIRE IS OFF SECTION AND BACK HOME IN SWANSEA!!!!!

After 3 months of hell, and being emotionally and physically exhausted, maybe now we can relax properly, and start thinking about Christmas – all together”

Claire will remain in the family home with a package of care while a suitable placement is being found.
