A Sudbury charity employee was found dead by her colleague earlier this year, a coroner was told.
An inquest into the death of Sarah Fernandez was opened and adjourned at Suffolk Coroner's Court in Ipswich on Friday.
Ms Fernandez, 28, who worked at family and community support charity Number 72, died on January 11 this year.
Area coroner Jacqueline Devonish was told Ms Fernandez, who lived in Great Cornard, had spent a stint in hospital the previous summer.
She said: "On the facts I have heard, I am satisfied that this case requires an inquest."
An internal case review is due to be held on August 2, with the inquest set to resume on October 21.
After Ms Fernandez' death, the charity posted on Facebook: "Sarah was a much valued staff member at Number 72 and an enthusiastic attendee of many Churches Together events, particularly Prayer Breakfast. She will be sorely missed.
