Jon is 23, has a learning disability and lived at home with his parents until he was 19 when he finished college. He now lives in supported accommodation in a shared house with 3 others who also receive support. Just after he left home he reported to a member of staff that he was hearing voices, some of which told him to harm himself. He has seen his GP about this but so far has not been offered any form of treatment and is awaiting a specialist mental health assessment.
Jon recently walked into the main road in front of a car. It is suspected that he did this deliberately although Jon says it was an accident. His parents are extremely concerned and want Jon to return home and live with them but he is saying he does not want to and prefers to stay where he is.
