The inquest into the death of a University of East Anglia student found asphyxiated in a campus room will resume next month.
The death of Theo Brennan-Hulme, 21, in March 2019 prompted his mother to call for better communication between the university and student families, and for parents to be told if their children needed help.
An inquest that was part-heard in March before the coronavirus lockdown, heard he had Asperger’s syndrome - a form of autism - and suffered anxiety attacks.
The student, from Stoke on Trent, had been given an NHS mental health risk assessment prior to his death after admitting suicidal thoughts and self-harming.
At a hearing on Monday, senior coroner Jacqueline Lake said the inquest would resume on November 23.
