Home and Away’s Sally star entered mental health clinic after drink driving charge

Home and Away’s Leah Patterson was forced to check herself into a mental health clinic but this actually happened in real life to actress Kate Ritchie who played Sally Fletcher

Leah Patterson was compelled to check herself into a Home and Away mental health facility.

Leah’s trauma has taken over in the last three weeks as she continues to deal with the fallout from being abducted and presumed dead by a cult. Because of her warped perception of reality, Leah thought that her companion Justin Morgan (James Stewart) was betraying her and collaborating with the cult that was terrorizing them.


Leah acted rashly during Monday’s Channel 5 soap opera, stabbing Justin with a knife. Justin tried to calm down his ex-fiancee during the tense confrontation, but Theo (Matt Evans) entered first.

He begged his Auntie to drop the knife, but this only made Leah more distressed. Theo called Bree (Juliet Godwin), who managed to get through to Leah and convince her to put the knife down.

Returning home, Leah explained to Bree that she has no memory of what occurred that evening, but became confused and frightened by fleeting memories of her brandishing a weapon. Bree determined that Leah had a psychotic episode, likely caused by a combination of her trauma and sleep deprivation.

Realising she could have seriously hurt Justin, Leah agreed to check into a mental health clinic. In December 2022, Kate Ritchie checked into an exclusive mental health clinic.

The actress, best known for playing Sally Fletcher on the Australian soap, entered the facility in Sydney to help combat her issues with alcohol. In October, two months after she was charged with drink driving and suspended from driving for three months, the former soap star announced she was leaving her afternoon drive radio show on Nova for the rest of the year.

In May 2023, Kate opened up about motherhood following her stint in rehab as she admitted that her daughter gives her purpose. The 45-year-old shares nine-year-old Mae with her ex-NRL star husband Stuart Webb.

Mae is one of the few people who actually allows me to be myself, and she gives me enormous power and purpose,” the woman said in an interview with The Sunday Telegraph. “Nothing more or less.” “I am just her mother, and she loves me for that,” Kate continued. To be completely honest, as she ages, she is also teaching me that I am worthy of love.”
