Spoiler Warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

The first time Mattie is mentioned, it is revealed that she has been signed off sick from work due to immense levels of stress, and Kay Bawden has to take over some of her cases, including the case of the Weedons. Kay proves much more adept at assisting the Weedons in their day-to-day lives than Mattie was. After Mattie recovers, she returns to work and once again becomes the Weedons' social worker, prompting Terri to relapse into taking drugs and the family's situation to go downhill again. After the deaths of Robbie and Krystal, Mattie is signed off sick with stress again.
