Dad, 21, 'takes His Own Life After Struggling With Lockdown' During Coronavirus Pandemic
A 21-year-old dad is believed to have taken his own life after struggling with lockdown. Red Gale, died on April 1 after sending a message to his mum and close friends "to say goodbye", Wales Online reports.
Red's sister Autumn Gale said he had suffered with mental health issues including depression and anxiety and claimed he was carrying "the weight of the world on his shoulders".
"He told my mum that he wouldn’t make it through the lockdown," Autumn said.
"He had so many friends and family who cared about him but when the rules started he lost that huge support system.
"We tried really hard to take the pain away from him but he struggled."
Tributes have been paid to the young man, who was described as a talented singer and gym enthusiast.
Autumn, 26, said: “My brother was funny, loyal and thoughtful, he went above and beyond for so many people, especially people who were struggling with their own mental health.
"So many of his friends have said that he pulled them out of a deep dark place a number of times and he was a caring dad to his daughter.
“He had been struggling with his mental health for a couple of years and was let down so many times.
"His friends and family, we were all fighting for him but he couldn’t do it anymore and gave up the fight.”
In a tribute to her son, Red’s mum Polly Gale said: “You had a soft, warm and loving heart.
"A heart that would fiercely protect the vulnerable, because you understood how it felt.
"You lived with a wounded heart for far too long and I wished everyday that the universe would protect you to heal that beautiful heart of yours.”
The family are now asking for more support for people struggling with their mental health, especially during the lockdown.
